When the ocean waters begin to warm, millions of shad begin the swim upstream to their fresh water spawning ground. Each spring the annual Shad Fest in Lambertville coincides with the heart of the American shad run up the Delaware River. The fishery is located on the south end of Lewis Island at the bridge which connects Lambertville with New Hope. Lambertville's commercial links with shad span more than a century. The Lewis family of Lambertville, whose island fishery dates to 1888, holds the only remaining commercial license to catch shad with nets.
