"Take A Kid Fishing!" Program
Bring your family out for a great day on the water's edge!
Delaware is a great state for youth fishing! We have many places to fish, and the Division of Fish and Wildlife offers free fishing lessons for children and young teens through it’s Take A Kid Fishing! program, sponsored by DNREC’s Aquatic Resources Education Center. Take A Kid Fishing! events are geared toward children ages 6 through 15 and take place at ponds throughout the state. Participants learn fundamental fishing skills and conservation. All equipment is provided, plus there are activity stations, prizes and time to practice new fishing skills.
Participation in the Take A Kid Fishing! program is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Please register by sending your name and the number in your group to Mary Rivera at email@example.com.
