    Hello all! I have been fishing the Rappahannock river for 20 yrs or so.....but never any serious catfishing. I always fished below the Rt1 bridge for shad but since the damn was blown out that area is almost useless. Anyone know a good place on the river (near fredericksburg) to catch both shad and catfish?? I would love to anchor, setup for cats and cast for shad.

    Thanks for any information!
