A LITTLE SHAD FISHING INFO

     Shad by the hundreds of thousands migrate up the Columbia and Willamette rivers from late May through the month of June and provide some of the most exciting fishing action you’ll find anywhere.
     Biologists who keep track of fish passing over fish ladders at Bonneville and The Dalles dams say that over the past few years, there have been runs of from slightly less than 2 million to nearly 4 million shad! That makes it the strongest and healthiest run of Shad coming up the Columbia. In addition to such large numbers, they are also unmatched fighters, pound-for-pound.



A native of the Atlantic Coast — shad were brought to the West by Seth Green of Rochester, New York in 1871, shortly after the Civil War.

During the next 10 years, 790,000 more were transplanted into the Sacramento River. The transplants fared well and shortly had established populations in several Sacramento River tributaries as well as rivers in Oregon and Washington.
