Years ago I used to fish for herring and shad below the spilway in the town of Occoquan.
I haven't heard of that location holding shad or herring in the last couple of years even as the fishing elsewhere has improved. I've heard that they're in DC at Fletchers Boathouse.
Have they started to return to the Occoquan or not?

things will get hot at Fletchers in a few short weeks. Right now the river is still high and muddy from all the runoff.

The "Original" Chesapeake Board is a better place to post/find stuff on fishing in the DC area. The Va Angler is lower bay and inshore Va Beach.

Check this site for updates:

Welcome to the Boathouse at Fletcher's Cove

Every year I go enough to get skunked a few times on either side of the run, have a few decent days and at least one world class perfect few hours of non-stop action. The Hickories are spectacular aerial fighers that are well worth targeting.

good luck - dan
