We have been fishing Shad there for quite a few years now it is great fun. Most of us fly fish but they can be taken just as well with Shad darts with a casting out Fit. the river is out side of Chipman, and Rte #116 runs next to it for nearly 30 km. There is no private Water o the river most places you have to access it through private property.... WARNing once you hook a few of them you will be addicted
they can burn up a fly reel with some of the big females.

Do you fish from shore or boat? If boat, is it motor boat, or can you fish via kayak or canoe?

Fishing from Kayaks seems to be coming More popular, though I have not Personalty but many are. We also fish from Canoes and well as Wading if the water starts to Drop.

All rightey, then! I have a couple of questions:
-Do you need a live-well? If so, I'm out.

No live well need . We keep the first good Shad and then release the ones that are smaller as we catch them . There is no shame in killing a couple American Shad they have healthy numbers.

If your Spin casting Shad darts are what to use you can get them at Wally World. If fly fishing they take a variety of Nymph type flies,there will be shad flies available for those interest the day of the tourney . Goodwin's fly shop locally sells a variety of tested patterns.

Thanks Old Guide - is Goodwin's in Chipman? If I were going to fish from a canoe, where would you suggest that I put in? (I have a small outboard on the canoe, so I can move upstream or down without too much hassle).

What is limited to the first 50 entries prizes or the derby?

Twinsfan-Goodwin's fly Shop is in Minto He will have Shad flies available the morning of the Derby.If you are coming to the derby we will show you landings that are easily assessable, no problem to launch a canoe. A small out board is a great Idea, but not a necessity.

JJbeers - We limit the # of entries to 50. Just because of the breakfast but a few extra entries will not be turned away I am sure.
