The Richmond weather forecast for saturday is looking rainy. Is the shad fishing still good in the rain?

sure, why not? it might increase the river level (above 14th street), and change the clarity of the water, but i havent heard of anything saying that the rain would mess it up too much- watch out if youre out there- the big tourneys going on this weekend, lots of boats in a small area, none looking for a little yak

Gave up after about 2 hours, rain was just too hard.

Well I went saturday morning below 14th street, fished for an hour, and the rain held off. Unfortunately, the train bridge that collapsed put an early end to my fishing. But i was impressed with the work that the JROC put into the kayak launch. no fish caught
