Fishing and Surf Fishing
Delawareans love their low-digit vehicle tags -- and now, you can own the sport fisherman's equivalent with the purchase of a low-digit surf-fishing tag for the front of your vehicle! A limited number of these black porcelain enamel plates, each with its own certificate of authenticity, will be offered at auction this year. Learn More
Anglers, regardless of whether you like to fish from the banks of a freshwater pond, or in the surf on the beach, your Delaware State Parks have the perfect spot for you. Some parks have piers for easy access, and charter boats are available at the Indian River Marina. From north to south, Delaware State Parks are the perfect destination for fishing enthusiasts.
For information about surf fishing on Delaware State Park beaches, use the surf fishing link above, or you may call (302) 739-9220 or send us an email.
In most cases, a license is required to fish in Delaware waters. Permits may be purchased online or at the park office. A fishing license is now required when fishing in tidal waters. More information about the fishing license requirement is available here.
