Free Fishing Days!!Date Posted: Thursday, May 30th, 2019
In celebration of National Fishing and Boating Week, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife invites anglers to fish, crab, and clam in Delaware waters by taking advantage of free fishing days Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2, when no fishing license is required for resident or non-resident anglers.
Anglers are reminded that even though they do not need a fishing license to fish on June 1 or 2, they are still required to obtain a free Fisherman Identification Network (F.I.N.) number, available online at www.delaware-fin.com or by calling 800-432-9228. Anglers also are required to comply with Delaware’s fishing regulations, including size and daily catch limits.
Most resident anglers from the ages of 16 through 64 and most non-resident anglers who fish, crab, or clam in Delaware waters are required to purchase a fishing license. Fishing licenses are sold online, at the licensing desk in DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901, and by license agents statewide. To find a participating agent, or to purchase a license online, visit Delaware Licenses.
More fishing information is available at 2019 Delaware Fishing Guide. The guide also is available in printed form at DNREC’s Dover licensing desk and from license agents throughout the state.
