I've been fishing canyon lake lately and I like it. However, I've not been able to find any good spots to net shad.

Does anyone have some insight?

thanks!

Casey

Or use / buy cut shad or perch.
Liven works at Canyon on R & R.

I've caught perch and used them both live and cut. I just wanted to try some shad. Chicken breast has been working pretty well for me lately so I have a couple of good backups.

Thanks for the responses.

Do you know of some good places to fish from the bank? I have a boat, but I'll have my 6 month old son with me and I'm not comfortable taking him on the boat by myself.

Shad are hard to cast net in Canyon. You also stand the chance of catching a big rock,which has eaten a
couple of my nets. Only bank access is the parks and the pier at the entrance to Cranes Mill Park. After
April 1st when Comal Park opens,it has good bank fishing. The parks do charge a day fee.

Unless you have an old guy National Park pass, then admission is free.

Where would you fish in Comal Park? I've never bank fished Canyon before.

Just pass the first boat ramp there is a bluff bank for about 300 yards. You will have to go down to first
parking on right,then walk over to it. I do not think they will let you park in boat ramp parking lot.
Good deep water along rock bluff. Hope this helps.

Take a perch rig and some worms. Use the perch, some live and some scaled and cut up.
