Here is the latest report from state Fish and Wildlife on Columbia River shad:

Through June 19, a total of 1,749,215 shad have passed Bonneville Dam, with the highest daily count of just over 182,000 shad passing on June 8.

Shad passage is typically 50-percent complete around June 12.

During the most recent five years, shad passage at Bonneville has averaged 1.6 million fish, ranging from 0.9 to 2.6 million.

In the Lower Columbia below Bonneville Dam, last weekend state Fish and Wildlife sampled 367 shad anglers (including 11 boats) with 1,873 fish of which all but two were kept.

There were a few dozen boats and over 300 bank anglers fishing for shad last Saturday during the effort flight count. All the anglers were observed from Camas/Washougal upstream.
