Can anyone give me directions (from Rt. 1 in Lewes) to Roosevelt Inlet? I'll be heading up there early next morning since i'll be spending a few days with some HS buddies at OC and thought I'd try a new location to fish.
I've only been tere once but I checked this on Mapquest for names so it should work. East off of Rt 1 on Rt 9, then bear left on Business Rt9 into Lewes. Go over the the canal and then left on Cedar St. or Bay Ave. to the end where there is a parking lot.
I just came back from Roosevelt Inlet I got 2 small Flounder and 1 24" Striper;all on minnows and squid combo.Lots of Blues on chicken;Lots of Flounder caught on squid/minnow,as well as chicken.I have yet to see a Trout caught ,but I hear they're over there.But this one guy had 2 19" Flounder caught on minnows/squid.A good amount of keeper Flounder caught.I did use some peelers for Trout on the incomming tide but no dice .
Fished Roosevelt Sunday morning in that ridiculous blow. Got 3 blowfish on Fishbites Coldwater baits and a couple of short flounder on minnow/squid. I really like the variety of environments you can fish in a short walking distance from the car-- back bay, inlet, jetty, and open beach. Excellent spot, I'll be back.
rugger. i have fished,cast for mullet in the fall, but there is no back bay. i think you might mean the little cove where the u of de. college of marine studies keep their boats. as you come in the inlewt from the bay, to your left is the beach, right is beach plum island, as you look at the cove, to the right is tha coasdt guard , to the left of the c.g. is canary creek, to the right is the broadkill river, and to the left is the end or beginning of the lewes rehoboth canal. all of which have fish.
