Default Fly fishing near around Rehoboth Beach, DE?

HI -- I get out to Rehoboth Beach somewhat frequently in the spring/summer and was wondering where might be a good place to wet a line? I know of the fishing pier at Cape Henlopen, but have never waded around there and have no idea what tackle to use or what species might be there.

I'm not set on any particular species, and would be interested in virtually anything out there -- Jacks, etc. Any folks know of good spots to hit? I have a 5 weight, a 6 weight, and will probably get an 8 weight before too long.

Thanks,

Check out where you are going to fish at low tide, look for sand bars, rock piles, anything funky around jetties, and get familiar with the tides. Fish the likely spots during the incoming tide and then try it at the out going. During the slack scout and blind cast the shore line.

I wade the flats around the pier often and it can be good at times.Clousers and decievers will pick up trout,flounder,stripers,and blues.Later on the croakers show up but most are on the small side.I usually use a 6wt rod uplined with a 7wt line,either a floater or an intermediate.I also fish the jetty at IRI and the same flies work there but I use an 8wt or a 9wt.Poppers are also good on the jetty and you will neeed korkers for the rocks as well as a stripping basket.
