Shasta Lake

Today we fished Shasta Lake again with the Bywaters looking for a few big bites, specifically brown trout.  Its been hit and miss for most on Shasta Lake recently, but we've managed to find some quality fish which have mostly been in the 3-4 lb range, with a few in the 6 lb. class.  Big rainbows are hard to come...

Shasta Lake

I've been fishing Shasta Lake this week and we're seeing a pretty good bite for rainbows and browns right now.  The past weeks rains and colder weather has dropped the surface temps to the 57 degree range and we're now seeing a good surface bite.  Fishing is best during inclimate weather with cloudy skies and some wind chop to break...
