"How to Fish for Shad, including a Report on the State of the Fishery."
Mark Binsted has been fishing for shad in the Potomac river by Fletchers Cove since he was kid growing up in the neighborhood. He is the author of NCC-TU's "Shad Reports" and his son Alex has worked for several seasons at Fletchers Boathouse. Mark is the "go-to guy" for advice about techniques for catching American shad and a report on the state of the fishery. In addition, Alex Binsted will give tips about shad fishing with spinning gear, and David Policansky will share his secrets for catching hickory shad on flies. You won't want to miss this popular program.
Contact George Gaines to dine with the speaker before the meeting at 5:30p at La Madeleine, 7607 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD.
Each Spring, the Chapter publishes email reports on the status of the shad run in the Potomac River, particular as it develops at Fletcher's Cove in DC. These reports are emailed only to those requesting them. If you wish to receive these reports and did NOT receive them last year, send an email from the address you want us to use to firstname.lastname@example.org with "SHAD" in the subject line. You are already subscribed if you received these reports last year; no need to re-subscribe.
The first reports should be emailed around mid-March.
Meetings are open to the public. Chapter meetings are held at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Services Building, 4805 Edgmoor Lane, downtown Bethesda, MD (right behind the Bethesda Metro station). Public parking at 75 cents per hour is available in the County parking garage below the building.
