DEC Considers Changes for Delaware River American Shad

Published by Dave Kile [davekile] on 06/16/2009 (1440 reads)
Meetings Announced to Obtain Public Input on Potential Reduction in Daily Creel Limits

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will be holding two public information meetings on potential recreational fishing regulation changes being considered for Delaware River American shad. The shad population is in significant decline and in need of rebuilding, prompting DEC to pursue decreasing the current daily creel limit from six fish to three fish.

In New York, recreational fishing on the Delaware River usually takes place from late April through early June, when shad move into the river to spawn. Changes to the daily creel limit would help reduce the amount of adult shad taken by recreational fishing in the New York waters of the Delaware and its tributaries. Pennsylvania has already initiated a regulation change consistent with the changes DEC is considering.

For further information regarding New York's current fishing regulations, please visit the DEC website at: .
