Summer Shad Kill Bow

The fish above was caught during a late summer shad kill “03” I think.  Usually summer shad kills are short lived lasting a week or two.  I have seen these summer kills last into october or up to 5 weeks.  Bull Shoals Lake has dropped 6 inches over the 24 hour period ending at 6:00 am this morning.  We should see this level drop steadily and increase somewhat due to the funnel effect.  The lower the lake gets the faster it will drop; just like a big funnel.

Remember when signing up for the shad kill to put SHAD KILL ALERT in the subject line so it won’t get kicked back as spam or junk.  I’m getting some inquiries as to the shad kill and fishing it during no generation periods.  We need generation to fish the shad kill.  It is best done out of a boat.  Sometimes fishing shad patterns on no generation water works but usually only after a bunch of shad have come through the dam and for an extended period of time.  Other flies will work at this time of no generation like midges, SJ Worms, sow bugs, scuds & buggers.
