What, if any, varieties of shad are in Oregon lakes and rivers? I know California has a few different varieties.

Only in the CR and Willy.

Yes FS they are a great food source for some, but they did not become the wide spread popular food source and economic boon that the Califorina Fish Commissioner dreamed of. Back east and in Europe folk appreciate the big herring more than we do out west.FishSchooler said:Irishrover... they are a great food source.
