These saltwater fish come into the river to spawn and come with plenty of energy. Shad are terrific game fish and can be caught just a few minutes away from our store.
Join AFFC guide Tom Peirano for a 4-hour on-the-water shad clinic every Saturday starting at 7 am till noon.
Beginning May 17th through June 14th (rain or shine). You’ll float a section of the river in Tom’s drift boat (shuttling is required) and the clinic will cover everything you need to know for catching the “poor man’s tarpon” -- including:
- The appropriate gear,
- Fly selection
- Fighting and
- Where the fish are most likely to hold.
There will also be plenty of time to put your new-found knowledge to the test in your quest to land some of these hard-fighting missiles of mayhem. All fishing gear will be provided. Just bring your fishing license and steelhead card and be prepared for whatever Mother Nature may throw at you.
This clinic is limited to just two students at a time and the fee is only $150 per student.
These clinics are sure to sell out so you’d better book your date now if you want to learn how to catch these fantastic fish on your own. Two students required per clinic. Just give us a call at 916-483-1222
