What, if any, varieties of shad are in Oregon lakes and rivers? I know California has a few different varieties.
But, what shad are in local rivers and lakes? American, Threadfin, Gizzard, etc?
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.Irishrover... they are a great food source.
shad come and go, so bass here dont get the honor to eat it all year long
Florida Bass? perhaps
and on the other hand, bass are very aggresive fish, never underestimate a BASS
