Yuki and I took off from the house at 8:00 and after a stop for coffee at the Local Bean Cafe in Rancho Murieta, got to the entrance of Rossmoor Bar only to find the road CLOSED.
We were redirected to the El Manto access. That was OK because I've fished there before and caught Shad, but not this time. So enjoy the pictures and I'll take up the adventure down below.

|Yours truly at El Manto. Instant replay.|
|A bird. I don't know why????|
|Wait, back to El Manto for another shot|
|Oops, me again.|
|Took a while, but they finally left and we could get to the "premium" spot.|
So I guess we just take our chances. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't. The Shad run only lasts a couple weeks and "they" (who ever "they" are) are saying this is the peak so we'll give it one more shot next Friday. We're bringing waders so we can stand in the river too. Maybe that's the key to catching them.
You guessed right, we didn't catch anything. Maybe next time.
