Columbia River Shad Numbers Increase - Fishing Good
We have been seeing some very impressive shad catches by customers this past week. The numbers of shad passing through Bonneville Dam continue to increase day by day. The fishing has been quite good. It appears with the water levels being high it has forced the shad to the edge of the water flows (nearer the edges) where they are more accessible to anglers. It also appears the high water has kept many from going through, concentrating them below the dam.
We have a good amount of shad gear on hand, though it has been going fast this season.
