Shad catches slowing down in Columbia River

Here is the latest word on shad fishing in the Columbia River:

In the Lower Columbia below Bonneville Dam based on mainly incomplete trips, bank anglers just below Bonneville Dam averaged just over two shad per rod.

Bank anglers off Steamboat Landing Dock in Washougal caught some fish as did boat anglers in the gorge and in Camas/Washougal.

In the John Day Pool 11 boats with 31 anglers caught 141 shad this past week.
