Shasta Lake trout fishing is wide open right now and todays crew proved it!  We had over 20 fish hooked before noon, and 18 of the best rainbows were harvested.  All our fish were caught between 45'-55' feet and most came on small UV dodgers and white or chrome finish spoons!  Everyone had a great day and got to do battle with several hard fighting rainbows before calling it a day.  I have the end of next week (20,21,22,23) available if anyone out there would like to catch some Shasta Lake rainbow trout!

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!

Easy limits for Rob and Jerry today!
