Glad you got some fish; shad are a blast on a flyrod. I'm bummed that I'll miss the run this year, although I'll get to fish some tailwaters here in MT once I'm done with the sage grouse count (maybe try to hunt down some skwalas on a river not named the Bitterroot, too). Hope that's the last lamprey you get.
