Another great day on Shasta Lake fishing for rainbow trout.  Morning bite was descent, but mostly smaller fish first thing in the am.  We got into a better grade of rainbows after the sun came up over the hill and hit the lake surface.  Trout are still at 45'-55' feet and are taking small presentations trolled at 1.8-2.0 mph.  UV dodgers and nickel or white spoons are getting the most bites.  Look for the bite to get even better as this  big moon gets smaller and smaller.  I have some days open still for this great fishery so give me a call or send me a message and we'll get your party on the books!
