DOVER – To celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week, June 2-10, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife invites you to fish, crab, and clam in any Delaware waters by offering free fishing days on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3. On these two days, anyone, out-of-staters included, may fish the state’s waters without a fishing license.
Anglers are reminded that even though they don’t need a license to fish June 2 or 3, 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.
With the exception of Delaware’s annual free fishing weekend, most resident and non-resident anglers from the ages of 16 through 64 who fish, crab or clam in any 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.
