Shasta Lake

We fished Shasta Lake again today and it seems a pattern is beginning to emerge.  These trout are absolutely sleeping in and the bites are coming in late like they tend to do on a big moon.  I'm used to diversity on Shasta Lake, but trout are morning feeders and having to wait for them to turn on like we...

Today we fished Shasta Lake and got into a good grade of fish early on again today.  We started with a big bite and the tough loss of a big brown on our first pass.  We bounced back and ended up with limits of fish averaging 3-7 pounds.  We had 15 trout and 2 bass in the box by 12:30 so...
