Salt Run Fish Fest Great Success

 

 

The annual Salt Run Youth Fish Fest held this past Saturday at Andrews Farm in Shippen Township was a success, according to organizers.

“Both the weather and fish cooperated this year with sunny skies and mild temperatures,” said Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA) Director Don Bickford. “This has turned into a great community event.”

More than 160 youth registered for this year’s event. Fishing is open to children ages 12 and under. Both the farm’s pond and a stretch of Salt Run that flows through the property were stocked ahead of the event this year.

“In total, we had over 350 people joining in the festivities. It is just a fun, family-oriented day that people look forward to each year,” Bickford said.
