Delaware Elite Anglers

Delaware’s Elite Anglers are the select few who have received Delaware Sport Fishing Tournament citations for five different species within one calendar year. A once-in-a lifetime award, the Delaware Elite Angler is the most esteemed level of angling accomplishment that the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife recognizes.

Elite Anglers

Any combination of saltwater and freshwater citations qualifies an angler for this award, although no more than two can be live-release awards. The distinction of “Delaware Elite Angler” acknowledges the determination, perseverance and level of accomplishment of those anglers who have reached this prestigious title.
