After being disapppointed in the results of my last two trips below Ice Harbor, I've contemplated going below McNary. I live on the Wa side and find the Oregon licenses too expensive for a few hours of shad fishing. Has anyone ever had any luck for shad on the point slightly above the bridge on the WA side (water is probably too deep to fly fish) or some point down stream where I could bank fish for a few hours this weekend? If I were to take a 15' smoker craft alaskan, can anyone give me advice on a good place to anchor and fish for shad? I am a novice to boat fishing and don't feel comfortable anchoring in fast water yet.
