I haven't had my boat over there in a long time, but I used to find shad at the mouth of the creek on the south side of the river just downstream from the Patton Island bridge. Forget the name of the creek, but it used to have warmer water (vapor rising in colder weather) and schools of shad were usually around. Be careful though, it does get real shallow when the water level is down!
Other than that, I think your best bet will still be the barge harbor. One note, as you enter the harbor look for a guy fishing from the rocks where the old train lift-bridge used to be. It might be me! (grin)
Good luck and good fishin'
