After four days of high and muddy water the Potomac has settled down enough for a good shad bite to start back up. Even in the murky and swift water today there were good reports of hickory shad. A couple cold nights dropped water temperature but once it starts to warm up the American shad bite will get strong. Still significant current the next few days but as the rivers calms and clears the fishing will improve dramatically. By Wednesday this week the shad fishing will be off the charts. Stripers and perch fishing will improve as well.
