2021 Update: With no get together in the month of January, I thought I would put out an update. I have received the approved permit from the Pa. Fish & Boat Comm. The Special Event Permit for the town of Phillipsburg has been submitted. I was told it will be an easy approval. The Insurance policy has been purchased. With restrictions being lifted, and vaccinations taking place, I feel confident that the 2021 Bi -State Shad Fishing Contest will go on as scheduled. I am looking to start up our get together in February. We will post up the time and place in the next day or 2. I will also be reaching out to the Delaware Water Gap folks, to let them know contest dates, and get info on river road status. Contest dates are April 22, 23, 24, 25. That's it for now. Get your shad gear ready, it won't be long now
