Dylan Patrick emailed parks about getting a surf tag while offices are closed.
” I just got the response from DNREC about surf permits. I hope this helps those who didn’t get one yet. Better save one for me though.
Surf permits are still be fulfilled remotely with no backlog currently. I believe our website says to expect two weeks for delivery but they are going out the next day via mail. If this is your first purchase of a permit make sure to request a plate when you buy your permit and check out our new online video on surf fishing. We reviewed other options about letting people fish and just show a receipt but are trying to keep our enforcement officers at a safe social distance whenever possible. Doing so would have lead to many unnecessary potential contacts. So unfortunately with the nature of COVID-19 we decided to have new purchasers wait until the plate and permit arrives before they can fish.”
