DOVER, Del. (WBOC/AP)- State wildlife officials are inviting anglers to drop their lines in Delaware waters, free of charge.
To celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week next week, the Division of Fish and Wildlife is offering free fishing, crabbing and clamming in any Delaware waters Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4. On those two days, anyone, including out-of-staters, can fish in Delaware without a fishing license.
But anglers will be required to obtain a free Fisherman Identification Network, or FIN number, which can be obtained online at or by calling 800-432-9228.
Anglers also must comply with Delaware's fishing regulations, including size and daily catch limits.

National Fishing and Boating Week festivities will also include the Division of Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police’s 31st Annual Youth Fishing Tournament from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 3. The event will take place at a pond in each county: Ingrams Pond near Millsboro, Akridge Scout Reservation near Camden and the dog training area at Lums Pond State Park near Bear. Participants are asked to arrive before 10 a.m. to register for the tournament.
