Fishing the Delaware River either a Pennsylvania or a New Jersey License will work for the Delaware River. You can typically buy a single day, multi-day or yearly fishing license at your local tackle shop, sporting goods store or Walmart. New Jersey offers online license and Pennsylvania licensing

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
