Comment: The American shad (Alosa sapidissima), the largest of the herring family, is a favorite Connecticut River sportfish. American shad are silvery with coloration shading from bluish dorsally to white ventrally. They have a deeply forked tail. They are delicate, readily experiencing scale loss and torn mouths when caught by anglers. American shad may reach lengths of 24 inches and usually weigh 4 to 7 pounds, females typically being larger than the males.

Comment: CT River used to be loaded with Shad in the spring. We would boat a 100 a day in the late 70's but now we are lucky to get 10 on a good day.

Comment: In Virginia there are very few places where you can legally take these fine fighters. I love the Nottoway. Every year they show up there on the weekend after St. Patrick's Day.
