    The hottest fly for me was the G3 which started out as a steelhead soft hackle but I’ve tweaked it to a shad fly.

    Wonderful Jeff.....thanks for another great Shad season report.

    During the 57 days did you catch any other species?


    What do you have planned for the next few months?

    Suckers and pike minnow. I’m going to primarily target summer run steelhead and occasionally stripers.

    Thanks, I'll try to remember to tie something similar for next year!

    This was the earliest I’ve ever caught a shad at Sailor Bar (May 3) and far and away the earliest end I’ve seen in 30+ years. Bluebacks, and some nice ones, stayed later as well. I only got one (1) shad on the surface, and saw almost no surface activity. But then, I didn’t get out as often or cover as much Water this year thanks to a combination of COVID and homeless camps. Anybody else see much surface action this year?

    I saw some surface action but I believe it was mainly for emergers.
