The Indian River Inlet is at the mouth of Indian River, a 15-mile river in Delaware. It's located east of Indian River Bay, and flows out to the Atlantic Ocean. Originally, the Indian River Inlet was a natural dynamic waterway. It played a role in shaping Delaware's coast and served as an entry point for crabs, oysters and certain fish species to survive in the bays. The United States Army Corps of Engineers installed jetties in 1938 for holding the inlet in place. In 2012, the Indian River Inlet bridge opened, spanning above the water.
Indian River Inlet fishing provides ample opportunities for a wide variety of species, including Striped Bass. Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Atlantic Croaker, Sheepshead, Black Drum and Bluefish can be found here most of the year. The Flounder or Fluke fishing can be excellent. A 12.69-pound flounder was caught here in 2020 and was the flounder state record for the year. In rocky areas inshore and nearshore you will find Black Seabass and Tautog. There are also Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper to be caught on bottom, along with Cod, Haddock, and Pollock.
There is excellent tuna fishing from the wrecks and rocky areas nearshore to the canyons in the deep straight out of Indian River Inlet. Bluefin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, and Yellowfin Tuna are common. There are also Bigeye and Skipjack Tuna much of the year. In the warmer months, Dolphinfish (Mahi-mahi) are commonly caught, along with lots of Wahoo at times. There is also good billfishing with Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, and Swordfish that are caught every year.
