Today we fished Shasta Lake for rainbows and browns.  We hooked into both, but the browns never made it to the net!  Most fish were caught from the surface down to 15'.  I work the surface as long as I can, but when the lake glasses over you gotta drop your baits down.  Lots of fish on the points and some scattered on the surface over the deep water.  Best numbers of trout continue to remain high in the lake arms.  Give me a call at (707) 616-1905 if you want to get out and catch some trout or just trophy fish.  We're getting a handful of chances at multi pound browns and bows just about every trip lately.
