Shasta Lake is the size of SF Bay, and for some, it can be a little intimidating when they first begin to fish it for one or more of its many species.  I get asked all the time how to fish Shasta for trout and many of my clients fish with me just to learn how to fish Shasta before heading out on their own.  Its my pleasure to help fellow anglers become successful on their own and the messages I receive from them expressing gratitude after they have a good day of catching their own fish is priceless.  I always tell them, its the small things that make a big difference on the water!  If you would like to learn how to catch trout on Shasta Lake, now is the time.  The trout fishing is very good and catching fish will only re enforce what I show you on the lake.  Visit, fill out a contact form, and lets go fishing!
