I went out to my favorite Shad spot this morning to catch a few Shad before the run folds. The Shad fishing was a bust but the Rainbows were wild. There was a Caddis hatch going on and the bows were launching clear out of the water. Not planning on rout fishing this spot all I had with me were Shad flys and wooley buggers for the Smallmouths that are common here. Finally tally no Shad, 1 Smallie, 7 Rainbows the largest about 17 inches.
