Ricky speaks truth. I fished Deer Creek yesterday afternoon and caught one on the upper side at the mouth of the creek. I saw two more caught in the two hours I was there. The river was up and muddy. I also caught a carp on a little twister trail on up in the creek. I saw some small shad (of some variety) playing around along the banks in the deeper water upstream. Sure is a purty creek. I fished here and there all the way up to the water plant, but nothing biting. I've never targeted shad before so looking forward to the bite.
