Bill thinks they will be late this year due to seasonally low water temperatures.

Wouldn't it be nice if fish finders had a species monitor?

I wonder if you marked schools of smolts?

The Shad are up in O.C. already. They have been there now for about two weeks. Will be heading out for some when the weather gets better. (Old man won't fish in rainy weather.) :cheers:

Ive fished the Umqua with some old timers (lifelong fishermen of the hwy 38 and 138 areas) who encouraged me to adapt a policy.

"If you catch a shad, start fishing for summer steelies"
It has been good advice for many years since.

I have no idea if this is the case with other rivers or not, but "shad" is a bit of good news if you ask me.

PS Ive also witnessed these guys eat the shad eggs right there on the river with a frypan, and some butter..never tried it and dont intend to unless someone here says I should (The only food I dont like is rocky mountain oysters :shocked: , and things I have yet to try)
