Okay, herring was kind of the guess. Some where caught Monday at McNears, San Rafael. I believe these are the same "herring" that people always say they catch at Point Pinole Pier in San Pablo Bay around this time of year. But... What I don't get. Herring are in Richmond around February. These other "herring" are all so much smaller and dr his late in the season?? Are these the same Pacific Herring. These "small frys" look like some small "herring" I used to catch in the Oakland Estuary.

Robert, It's hard to say based on the photo. Looks like a Pacific herring, the kind typically encountered in the bay in the winter/spring although it could be a small shad. Most shad though have a row of spot of spots along their back. Most, but not all. Best guess: Pacific herring.
