Learn to Fish – Frankford Boat Launch



Learn how to catch one of the many fish species found in the tidal Delaware River. Rods, tackle, bait and basic instruction will be provided. First come, first served. We have rods to loan out and worms for bait. You are welcome to bring your own rod.

No fishing license necessary; state license requirements are waived for these events. Great for youth & adults who are new or intermediate anglers.

*Due to social distancing – you MUST preregister via the eventbrite page:

. Participants will be capped at 20 people.
This series is taking place in partnership with MidAtlantic Youth Anglers & Outdoors Partners

The access road to the park is located at 5650 Tacony Street, Philadelphia. Once you turn down that road (east towards the river), you’ll pass the Dietz and Watson Employee Parking Lot on your left. Park along the Trail on the access road near where you see a closed gate. Enter the gate through the walk/bike lane and walk to the river. Check-in will be there.
