Default what fly for shad????

Stopped by the warm water discharge creek at a nearby powerplant today to have a look at fishing possibilities. Where the creek empties into the (Ohio) river there was a lot of surface activity. The surface temp was 57F at that point so I hiked back to the truck and grabbed my 3wt rod (always in the truck ).

Tied a foam ant - nothing.
Tried an orange nymph - snagged one. (yes, actually snagged in the back)
Tried several pattens I had in my fly box and could not get a hit at all.

The shad were coming to the surface, but didn't seem interested in taking a fly?

Any suggestions?
