    The limit is no American shad anywhere in the rivers that feed the Chesapeake bay. Hickory shad is the limit is no limit anywhere below the fall line. No keeping above the fall line. Herring no limit but maybe change to off limits next year.

    The Hickory shad are being caught right now in the Appomatox River in Petersburg.
