Fishing

Learn how to catch one of the many fish species found in the tidal Delaware River at the various river parks of the Riverfront North trail and park system. 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.

This series is taking place in partnership with MidAtlantic Youth Anglers & Outdoors Partners
