Young anglers of all skill levels are invited to enjoy a day of fun and fishing at Assateague State Park’s annual Youth Surf Fishing Derby.

Participants will learn fishing techniques from local experts with the Assateague Mobile Sportfishermen’s Association and have the chance to win prizes for their catch! The Association will provide anglers with a free hot dog lunch.

The park has limited fishing equipment available for loan, so those who have their own gear are encouraged to bring it. Signup will be at the Assateague State Park day use boardwalk ─ pre-registration is not required.
