Great report and pic as always Whip. I know the sturgeon guys love shad for bait but I wonder it the smaller ones would be good for lings ?

We didn't catch any that were small enough that I would use for ling bait but I am sure the flatties would eat them!

I typically don’t fish but love to take my boys fishing, I’ve always heard that while they may not be the best eating fish Shad are a fun fish to catch. Is it too late to fish for Shad on the Umpqua or are they still running?

Thank you sir! If you don’t mind let me know how the fishing was, I’m going to try to take my boys next weekend.
