The American Shad is the largest fish in the herring family. Every spring, shad migrate from salt water to fresh water to reproduce. Fishermen call this the “annual spring shad run.”
I’m so excited to be going to the Shad Fest for my 6th year. This is a great show just over the bridge by New Hope in Lambertville, New Jersey. It has a great atmosphere and the weather is usually always nice. I love buying a t-shirt there every year. They usually have left over t-shirts with last year’s design at a discount price, so you can see what last year’s shirts looked like even if you missed the show. If you don’t have any plans, head out and see what’s happing there this year.
