In May and June the Umpqua River has a run
of 175,000 Shad. Most of the Shad
run form 3 to 4 lbs and pound for pound there is nothing that
fights as hard as
a Shad. They jump, take off on long runs and they never give up.
If Salmon and
Steelhead fought like Shad you would never land one.
fun that you can do with a 5-weight fly rod than catch Shad. We
ultra light spinning rods. We take clients Steelhead fishing,
and Shad catching. The average fishing time when we are on a
school of Shad
is 6 to 8 minutes to hook up. Shad are excellent for kids and
you want to get into fishing because you have so many hookups.
Shad fight so
well that they teach a person how to handle a big fish like a
Steelhead, and you can learn not to let them run or they will
break you off. A
3-pound Shad will fight like a 6-pound Steelhead. Fishing for Shad
much fun that you will say to your self. "SO THIS IS WHAT IT'S
LIKE TO FISH
YESTERDAY''. So if you want a great time try Shad fishing you it
will be an experience you will enjoy, and remember forever.

limit, the PROFESSIONALS that can take to the action are at
