Note: Snakeheads and Flatheads Read

To maximize your fishing experience I would reccomend having both a New jersy and Pennsylvania fishing license. This will give us the flexibility to up creeks and other cuts that are off the main steam of the Delaware River that a single license may not cover. If you bring a Pennsylvania license only we can only fish the Pennsylvania waters, same is true with New Jersey License

What Bring
