OREGON OUTDOORS VIDEO: American Shad Fishing

Loading the player...

In this week’s Oregon Outdoors, the Mail Tribune’s Mark Freeman is on the Umpqua River doing some sport fishing for American Shad. Mark details how to catch American Shad as well as it’s history and key role in the Revolutionary War.

Shad aren’t exactly a delicacy due to their high bone content, but they are fun to fight and are pretty acrobatic. You can catch Oregon Outdoors Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday evenings on KTVL or view previous episodes right here on The Rosebud Channel.
