Bring your family to a freshwater fishing pond in your county for the 2022 Youth Fishing Tournament. Registration for this event is closed.
The annual Youth Fishing Tournament introduces the stateâ€™s young people to the sport of fishing, along with the catch-and-release approach to conservation.
The tournament will be held at one public pond in each Delaware County:
Trophies will be awarded to first place winners in each age group based on the weight of the fish they catch. There will be an overall county winner and a statewide winner. And there will be trophies for the smallest and largest fish.
The program is free, and open to anglers aged 4 to 15. Pre-registration required no later than Friday, May 20, 2022.
The tournament is sponsored by the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Police.
