Fishing in the Sassafras River


Fishing Kent County - Sassafras River

The symbol indicates a public landing and/or a put-in point for small craft.  Directions to each from the main road are included below.

The Sassafras River forms the northern boundary of Kent County.  Unlike the Chester, the Sassafras runs nearly east-west and is substantialy shorter.  Less than a mile beyond the mouth of Lloyd Creek, the Sassafras flows past the resort town of Betteron and into the Upper Chesapeake Bay.
