Forks of the Delaware Shad Fishing Tournament Begins on Saturday

Shad fishing is an annual Easton tradition, and this year is no exception.

Today is last day to register for the 31st annual Forks of the Delaware Shad Fishing Tournament and Festival, which officially begins at 12:01 a.m. this Saturday, April 27. The event runs until Friday, May 3.

With a grand prize of $1,000, daily prizes of $75, $50 and $25, and other prizes as well,  anglers have ample incentive to sign up and participate. Their chances of winning have increased too, since in recent years participation in the annual event has declined.

Registration is $30, and those wanting to get in on the action can sign up in person at Scott Park, on Larry Holmes Drive just south of the free bridge, from noon to 6 p.m. today.

Online registration is also available--visit
