Shad jigging on the kayak might be fun. Tell I got a small enough one to drift the holes for real fish ;)

Off the kayak is the best way to slay em. With a fly rod and just twitching the fly they slam it.

THere was a kid last summer with a rod like that fishing off the Sunrise foot bridge. I shared a few shad darts with him. The look on his face when he hooked up with a rod like that was awesome. The shad had that rod bent over and I was a little surprised the rod didnt break.

Still too early anyway. those flows will help in the long run by drawing fish up the AR. Low flow years are typically not as good. By the time the fish arrive in numbers the flows will be more reasonable.

14k cfs last year and they were stacked in the river. We hammered them pretty hard

Stripers eat them :)This is fake news
Stripers only eat sardines and chicken livers. Big live bait is a waste of time and cruel to the shad.
