Shad fishing - Downtown Richmond, VA

Scott Gregg

The shad fishing continues with this evening trip in downtown Richmond. We put in at Ancarrows Landing and fished just downstream of the I95 bridge. The bite is on, and this is a fun way to spend an afternoon. It tends to get crowded on the weekend once the word get's out so if you can slip down after work and fish until dark, you'll have less traffic on the river. Shad, Sometimes called "River Herring" come in two subspecies during this run. Hickory Shad, and the larger American Shad. Both think they are Tarpon and fight very well with some exciting jumps mixed in.
