The American shad, a migratory fish, were once so abundant in the Potomac River that people said the river would “run silver” each spring. By the 1970s numbers were so low that even seasoned anglers went home empty-handed. Shad Run chronicles the abundance, demise, and quest to bring back America’s forgotten fish.
