New publication targets Columbia's June shad run

OLYMPIA -- June is the hot month for shad fishing and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has a free publication telling anglers how and where to catch--and cook the fish.

Shad are members of the herring family and enter the Columbia River in large numbers in late May and June to spawn. They can grow to 24 inches in length and weigh up to eight pounds.

The publication "Shad Fishing in Washington" is available at WDFW offices. It also can be obtained by writing to:
