The 2014 Delaware Fishing Guide is being distributed to fishing license dealers throughout the state, including sporting goods, bait & tackle and hardware stores. The annual fishing guide is produced by the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife.
Anglers also can pick up a copy of the guide, along with their fishing license and trout stamp, at the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife’s main office in the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, and can check it out online too – by visiting 2014 Delaware Fishing Guide.
The full color guide contains information on Delaware’s fishing license requirements and the F.I.N. number program, as well as sections on tidal and freshwater sportfishing, fishing regulations, and general angling information. Other topics include highlighting new regulations and initiatives, trout stocking, fish consumption advisories, invasive species and Delaware’s artificial reef program.
New for this year are modifications to black sea bass and black drum regulations, and regulations that authorize bowfishing for invasive species in tidal waters. In addition, the Division of Fish and Wildlife now offers online tag reporting for largemouth bass taken in the Nanticoke River, Broad Creek and Broadkill River.
