In May and June the Umpqua River has a run of 175,000 Shad. Most of the Shad
run form 3 to 4 lbs and pound for pound there is nothing that fights as hard as
a Shad. They jump, take off on long runs and they never give up. If Salmon and
Steelhead fought like Shad you would never land one.
 

There is nothing more
fun that you can do with a 5-weight fly rod than catch Shad. We also use
ultra light spinning rods. We take clients Steelhead fishing, Salmon fishing
and Shad catching. The average fishing time when we are on a school of Shad
is 6 to 8 minutes to hook up. Shad are excellent for kids and someone that
you want to get into fishing because you have so many hookups. Shad fight so
well that they teach a person how to handle a big fish like a Salmon or
Steelhead, and you can learn not to let them run or they will break you off. A
3-pound Shad will fight like a 6-pound Steelhead. Fishing for Shad is so
much fun that you will say to your self. "SO THIS IS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO FISH
YESTERDAY''. So if you want a great time try Shad fishing you it will be an experience you will enjoy, and remember forever.
