One good side effect of the cold weather: shad kill. We will probably see a shad kill this winter, the way temps are trending. If you hear about it, or start to see dead 1-2" shad in the drift, it is time. The closer to the dam the better. Try a white Bugger, or a #2 Shad Kill eFly (thus the origin of the name of that color scheme), and it is game on. Let it drift a lot with an occasional twitch. Lots of fun!

Or, based on what Alex said, try some big stone fly nymphs!
