I fished the river today, 12 May. The shad are definitely on the down turn but there are still some there. I caught about a dozen or so and saw several others catching as well. I could probably have caught more shad, but I was concentrating on a smoker full of white perch. I think I may have several more than a smoker full but some of them will wind up as fillets so that is ok. There are some nice WP up there and the females are now up river. I think some of the males I caught were spawned out. I will know for sure when I clean them tomorrow. Water temps are still 60.4-60.6 or so.
