Philly Striped Bass Derby
Posted 01 April 2011 - 10:27 AM
The first annual Philadelphia Striped Bass Derby is a catch and release fishing tournament on
the banks of the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers. The event runs from May 1st-June 4th. The goal
of the Derby is to create a fun angling event for Philadelphia residents, raise awareness of the
importance of clean local rivers, and to build community through fishing. The Derby’s focus on
the striped bass is meant to highlight the role that our local rivers play for a fish that migrates
from North Carolina to Maine and back every year!
The event is affiliated with the Tidal Schuylkill Festival, which includes a number of events
spotlighting the recreational opportunities available on the lower Schuylkill River.
Registration opens April 15th 2011 and will remain open throughout the length of the Derby.
Registration can be completed online, via mail, or in person at one of our events.
Registration fee is $25, payable via Paypal. If you wish to register via check or another method, please contact Jason: jason at phillystripedbassderby.com.
Entry fee includes T-Shirt and Official Derby measuring tape.
20% of each entry fee is being donated to the Delaware Riverkeeper.

We have extended registration until May 15th. You can register online and we can drop the stuff off to you, or we can meet and you can pay in person. We have yet to have a striper posted, so if you feel like you could reel one in and win it, now is the time to enter.
