Cherry!!
Took the day off work and hit the river this morning with Chris and V. From the moment we arrived it was fish on with V hooking up before I even had my line in the water. He continued to hook up and land at least 5 before I got my first one. Chris had a couple as well before I landed my first one.

For the first part of the morning there was four of us fishing but after a few hours people decided to join us since we were catching fish all morning. Before long it was combat fishing shad style hahaha

Not nearly as many people as Salmon combat style lol. Good thing though cause most of them couldn't fish very well :).

We fished until 2pm with well over 120 fish landed. Several folks not happy as we would put fish after fish back in the water to swim away lol. I did bring one scaly beast home to use for catfish bait.

Great first shad fishing trip for me today! Thanks fellas!


Fish on!

Well I have had two first this year, steelhead and now shad. Steelhead hooked me shad was fun but didn't leave that "I want to wake up and go back tomorrow" feeling. Maybe I'll have that feeling when I wake up tomorrow though lol

It was the most fish I have ever caught in one day. My son was amazed at the amount of fish we caught and asked if he could go tomorrow lol

Never shad fished before. Planning on it being my first time this year as well. Where they at on the feather man? Verona? Think they might be further up north yet around Yuba?

They are as far as Yuba and even higher probably almost at oroville. Guessing they will chill near the after bay.

Thanks! Just realized I'm not going to be able to drive that far today, I have to stay close to the kids school so I'm going to go check out the AR. But I will keep that place in mind when I can roam away from home. :)

as far as i can tell they are just now starting to get into oroville :X hooked up a couple times last week but they were pretty far apart and nothing landed. dont think it was salmon since it would have been bigtime bendo on my 7ft ultralight flyrod LOL

LOL i wont, but Yeah i had to revisit it after hearing that shad fishing is actually getting really hot on the feather right now. Buddy of mine has been slaying them and he told me about one of his productive holes hes been fishing lately. Said hes been having anywhere from 10-30 fish days. Ive been so busy i just havent had a chance to get out yet. Thinking ill hit the feather the next couple days and if its slow ill work my way up towards oroville. I know they have to be in there somewhere... lol
