DE Freshwater Trout Season - Now Open!

Mar 02, 2013 -- 7:15am

Delaware’s 2013 trout season is now underway.  DNREC officials met a truck from Pennsylvania Thursday to stock Tidbury Pond near Dover and Newton Pond near Greenwood with rainbow trout – including some trophy sized trout.  You will need a resident annual Delaware recreational fishing license for anyone 16 to 64, which covers fresh and tidal waters as well as crabbing and clamming.  No fishing license is needed for anyone under age 16 or 65 and older.  Non-resident anglers age 16 and older also need a Delaware fishing license.  Licenses are $8.50 for residents, $20 for non-residents.
