Shasta Lake trout fishing is wide open right now and todays crew proved it!  We had over 20 fish hooked before noon, and 18 of the best rainbows were harvested.  All our fish were caught between 45'-55' feet and most came on small UV dodgers and white or chrome finish spoons!  Everyone had a great day and got to do battle with several hard fighting rainbows before calling it a day.  I have the end of next week (20,21,22,23) available if anyone out there would like to catch some Shasta Lake rainbow trout!
