"Take a Kid Fishing!" and Family Fishing Programs 

Do you know a child or young teen who might enjoy learning about fishing and trying their hand at landing a fish? In the Delaware Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Take a Kid Fishing! program, they can do just that! Sponsored by DNREC's Aquatic Resources Education Center, Take a Kid Fishing! teaches young people fundamental fishing skills and conservation. This free event also features activity stations, prizes and of course, fishing. All equipment will be provided. 


Interested in becoming a TAKF volunteer?
We are currently seeking volunteers to help with our kids fishing programs. Program activities are fun and easy - you do not need to have any special knowledge of fishing in order to volunteer with us. We have some volunteers who are avid anglers and others who prefer to help the kids with activities such as knot tying or fish printing. There is something for everyone who would like to get outdoors and join other volunteers in a great program for kids.

Workshops for new volunteers are scheduled for:

  • Saturday, April 11
    9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, April 16
    6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
  Location: Aquatic Resources Education Center
                   4876 Hay Point Landing Rd.
