The annual Youth Fishing Tournament introduces the state’s youth 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:

  • New Castle County – Lums Pond Dog Training Area, Bear
  • Kent County – Akridge Scout Reservation, Camden
  • Sussex County – Ingrams Pond, Millsboro

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.

The program is free, and open to anglers aged 4 to 15. Pre-registration is closed. For questions, please call 302-739-9913.

The tournament is sponsored by the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife Natural Resources Police.
