Hey guys, I was at kennebecasis river today with my fly rod and spinning rod. I caught and released a bunch of trout and salmon but couldn't hook a shad wich I really wanted to. I tried all sorts of flies and baits. I used almost all the flies I had with me, almost all th e crank baits, plastics, putty baits and worms. I just could not get anything to work. Any suggestions to catch shad? all suggestions will be appreciated!

some people uses mickey finn for shad... was the salmon u caught big or just 3-4 inches?
The salmon was just about 5-7 inches max. I did not mesure it but it was only a parr so it wasn't that big. Also do you know if red devil spoons work good for shad?
#12-14 tiny green machine.
I tried a green machine fly. this is what the one i used looked like, I had no luck
