Are You Aware? – Fishing Rules at Piers and Launches
DNRECâ€™s Division of Fish & Wildlife
April 14, 2017
Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police remind visitors to division wildlife areas, fishing piers and boat launching facilities that these areas are closed to the public from sunset to sunrise unless a person is actively and lawfully engaged in fishing or hunting in accordance with state regulations and individual wildlife area rules. Anyone not meeting these requirements found in Division of Fish & Wildlife sites between sunset and sunrise faces fines up to $100 for trespassing after hours. Continuing operations are planned statewide to curb illegal activity on Fish & Wildlife properties.
For more information on individual wildlife areas, including the rules and regulations specific to each wildlife area, wildlife area visitors are encouraged to review Delaware wildlife area maps. These maps are available in hard copy at DNRECâ€™s Dover licensing desk in the Richardson & Robbins Building, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901, and online at Delaware Wildlife Area Maps.
DNRECâ€™s Division of Fish & Wildlife recognizes and thanks the majority of anglers, hunters and boaters who comply with and support Delawareâ€™s fishing, hunting and boating laws and regulations. Citizens are encouraged to report fish, wildlife and boating violations to the Delaware Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police by calling 302-739-4580. Wildlife violations may also be reported anonymously to Operation Game Theft by calling 800-292-3030 or online at http://de.gov/ogt.
