I fish a river that has a good bit of shad in it. I know this because I can catch them as see them at the locks and dam on this river. The problem is, they have the locks closed due to work so I cant get shad there. I also know you can find them around drain outlets but there aren't any on this river. So how can I locate (find) shad in the river? Some say around feeder creeks but how do you know if they are there or not? Do I just throw my throw net and hope for the best or are there things I need to be looking for?
