Good Shad Numbers At Bonneville
If you are going to chase shad this season the time is prime with good numbers of shad making it though Bonneville. We have had good reports coming in this week. One of the customers that was down on Tuesday managed to score over 100 for him and his fishing partner. He said the morning fishing has been a little on the slow side but the afternoon fishing was off the hook. It just goes to show you that if you are going to make the trek that you should tough it out for the day and fish. The longer you keep your gear in the water the better your chances are. With shad you just have to stick it out until the fish move through.
So far this season we have seen a bit over a million shad pass through the dam, which is not a record run by any means but still enough to provide some good fishing.
We still have good numbers of shad darts on hand.
