Its Sac River Shad Time! But, in Redding it is all about the rainbows…

As the Cottonwood seeds fly in the breeze, the Shad continue to rise in the Sac River. Shad are a very fun fish to catch with their muscly bone-filled structure straining on the line all the way to the boat, kayak or to shore. Shad have reached Red Bluff and can be caught between Anderson and the Delta.

Other fishing updates from the Sac Bee:

•  SACRAMENTO RIVER, Sacramento– Shad fishing has been good at Discovery Park, Miller Park and Verona. Fish have gone upstream and taken lots of small shad with them. Catfish are also fishing in the Toe Drain and Deep Water Channel. Tisdale—Shad fishing has been good, and there’s been lots of fishing for striped bass at night on black rubber worms Red BluffShad have gotten all the way to Red Bluff, and some anglers are doing combinations Trips. Anglers can fish for shad in the a.m. and trout later on, getting in both species in one day. Redding—Trout are putting on a show with some big rainbows to about 5 pounds taking pmd nymphs under indicators. Flow have been up raised to about 7,500 cfs.

Get your license, grab a fishing pole and some tackle and head out to the Sac River this Memorial Day Weekend for some Shad-time.
