Shasta Lake rainbow trout fishing was off the hook today and we had full limits by 8:30 am.  Honestly, I was busy netting fish and getting lines back down in the water from start to finish. Bob, John, and Chris had a great time and described the fishing as, "the best they have ever experienced".  Before I could get the second rod in the water to start the day, we had our first fish.  Admittedly, not every day fishes as good as it did this mornig, but over all, Shasta Lake trout fishing this summer has been very, very good.  Get out early, you'll be glad you did!
