Legislation To Restrict Surf Fishing At Lewes Beach
Anglers could lose surf fishing access on Lewes Beach
(June 28, 2021) … There is a bill in the General Assembly that has one line in it that will restrict surf fishing access in Lewes. This bill has absolutely nothing to do with the environment, fishing or anything mildly related.
. “Permitting the City Council to restrict fishing on the Delaware Bay shore, northwest of the Ferry terminal.”
I have no idea why this is proposed except for maybe safety concerns? I don’t think a land based angler is much to worry about as far as safety. I’d be more worried about the little boats out there, not like the Ferry has brakes.
I’ll leave to you all to make some calls and ask the City of Lewes.

Long Title … AN ACT TO AMEND THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF LEWES RELATING TO THE MANNER AND METHOD OF CONDUCTING ANNUAL MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS AND FISHING ALONG THE DELAWARE BAY SHORE
