    This is July 6th, so what is the longest a Shad run has gone on the Lower American River?

    I’m not on the water nearly as much as some, but over the last 30 years the latest I remember was early August.

    I’m still finding fish in the last 40 minutes of light, but it’s certainly tailing off. This was the first year in memory that I didn’t get any shad on the surface - didn’t even see many on top.

    Could the lower numbers be related to the low water of 2021-22 maybe?

    I’ve gotten them up to mid August during the last hour of light and there are always small males hanging around until Fall. I got a dozen swinging for steelhead in October.

    Wanna guess who first showed them to him, back when all his hair was dark and, well, I still had some ��?

    Over my long career of selling fishing tackle near the Lower American River, I got feedback from someone

    in September who was fishing a caddis dry for Half-pounders and caught a Shad.


    I was on the river about 15 years ago with Jeff while he was skating a caddis dry in a tail out catching Shad.
