Just wondering if anyone is catching any shad in the American yet? I live 5 minutes from Sailor Bar, and was thinking I'd toss some jigs soon. Is it still too early?

Still nothing for me.
And I've been at it daily.
The water is friggin cold! I went with shorts and went out to a spot which required me to go into the river up to my waist.
Not good.
Threw for about 2-3 hours no grabs.

Later than last year... That's fine with me. I prefer the hot weather Shad fishing.

I bet this year there are twice the drownings as last year with the increased flows and colder water temps.

Yeah once we get some 80-90 degree weather the rafters start and that water is cold. They drink, don't feel anything and it's all bad....

You are probably right, but the fish and river need those flows and cool water.

We'll see what happens.

Some folks are claiming they have been catching them in around freeport last week. I've tried minnow hole and miller park for nada.

They're scattered right now. I was in Colusa the other day and watched folks hammering them from the bank. Thinks I might give Verona a shot

Sounds like law enforcement pulled the fourth body out of the AR today for the year (heard on radio, but can't find stats for the year online). Be careful and hope it wasn't one of our shad'n or steelheading members.

Looks like a homicide.
Was in the slow water, under a snag apparently. If not a homicide maybe a homeless... No reports of anyone missing along the river lately.

WoW.....It's been a while since I was on the forum. Finally got some time out on the water today. Fished the foot bridge below Sunrise Blvd for an hour. Action not super hot but they are in there. Pink seems to be the color today. Maybe 10 hook ups and 5 landed between 4-5pm but nada for me.
