shad fishing in the san joaquin, about 1916
Shad are bony fish that come up river to spawn. They are caught with a net rigged on a very long pole, like the man in the center has in his hand. That's my father, aged about 6, asleep in the middle with the small dog, so I guess this is about 1916. We were always going to go shad fishing, but never did. From my uncle: I think my folks must have learned about Shad fishing when they had a ranch in Turlock, because it was part of our spring activities as far back as I can remember, and as long as my father lived. The first trips I remember were taken in a Chevrolet touring car (a top, but no side curtains or windows). This must have been about a 1923 model. My dad had parked their 1918 Model T Ford in the barn crosswise so he could park this Chevy straight in. I don't remember having ridden in the Ford before it was parked. It was a big deal switching from the Model T to the Chevy because now he had to learn how to use a gear shift, and this wasn't too easy. There was no synchro-mesh so you had to try to match the speed of the engine to what you expected it to be in the new gear, using the sound of the engine as a guide. The clutch facilitated this but it was still tough, and my dad wasn't particularly good at it. The fact that he had severe deafness from working all of his life in sawmills may have been a factor. After about 1928 we used our 1926--7 passenger Studebaker. After working in the lumber yard all week till Saturday noon (for 33 dollars), he would walk home to the Chevy that my mother had loaded with good eats, blankets, and equipment to cook over a campfire. After eating dinner (at noon), he would load up the fishing nets and wash tubs to hold the fish. We would then start our trip to the San Joaquin River. The first trips I remember were to the Paradise Dam, near Tracy. The dam was formed by very large granite boulders that we had to climb over, so I guess we fished from the face of the dam. I only remember a couple of trips to this site because we then started going to Mc Leods (pronounced like Mc Cloud) ranch which allowed fishing from the levee. I think we had to pay a half dollar to fish. We would drive along the top of the levee for about a half mile which would bring us to a bend in the river and a nice camping spot. This river bend made this an especially good spot as the fish seemed to run along the edge of the stream and would run into our nets as they were about to take the bend. I guess the currents were just right. With this type of fishing, it has to be done from about dusk to midnight, because those are the hours when you can catch them. Our fishing was mostly done during May as I recall, because this is when the fishing were migrating upstream to spawn. They are a form of Herring and run from 2 to 5 lbs. They come up from the ocean, through San Francisco Bay, and then up the rivers. There are a lot of Striped Bass in the rivers at the same time. The nets were home made out of chicken-wire. The mouth of the net was about 30 to 36 inches in diameter. It was about 40 inches deep, in the shape of a cone. The upper rim of the net was attached to a steel rod in the shape of a circle that had flattened matched ends that allowed attachment to a clear Douglas Fir pole, which measured about 2" x 2" x 16' or 18'. Since my Dad had access to the best lumber and the machinery to cut and finish the poles, we always had the best. These poles were attached to the left side of the car with the nets roped across the back. We could carry 2 or 3 as they could be stacked. The last pieces of equipment were long 2" x 4" stakes that would be driven into the banks at the water's edge. A spike or metal rod was driven into the stake to provide a crotch over which the pole of the net was lodged when fishing, The net would be submerged into the water with the mouth facing downstream. (The fish are going upstream). The long pole allowed testing various depths to find the fish. When the fish hit the net or entered it, you would feel a bump. You had to quickly turn the net upright and to pry it out of the water. Some bumps result in a fish, or maybe on occasion two. If the fish hit the rim of the net or was too quick, you would come up empty. It was really fun waiting for the bumps. There would be a number of people fishing along the bank and others just sitting, visiting, and watching. The fact that it was dark most of the time added to the special atmosphere. One of the things people liked to do was to secretly touch the end of the pole that extended past the fisherman as he was concentrating on the net and river. You could make it feel just like a fish bump and it was fun to see the guy react. You couldn't do this more than once however. There was no limit on the number of fish you could catch and there was no size limit. On good trips my Dad would usually bring home about 2 gunny sacks full--20 or 30 fish, or 2 wash tubs full.
