Public Fishing and Crabbing Locations

How to Purchase a License

Individuals over the age of 16 must have a valid Maryland fishing license for fishing and crabbing.

Individuals under the age of 16 are not required to obtain a license to sport fish/crab. They can, however, purchase a recreational crab license if they want to catch the bushel of crabs allowed with that license. Fishing licenses are sold through Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Navigation issues and waterways are managed by the State and the US Coast Guard.
