This spot never disappoints in the winter months! Fishing has been fair to good thanks to stable water conditions! Go check it out! Expect to have this place to yourself! Right now is the time to fish here! Focus on the edges of the currents near Shasta Dam. Suspending (under an indicator) #14 Birds Nest, #16 Dark Lord or a Copper John can work great!

Stripping leeches and buggers on a type VII full sink line works great here. Fish going over 20" happen! Releases out of Shasta Dam have been stable. Good place to hire a guide though. Finding these fish requires some special knowledge and a boat.

Indicator suspended Birds Nests, Midges, PT Nymphs should work along the edges of the fast water near the Dam. Suspend your flies about 2-3 feet below the indicator. These fish like to come up to the fly. Fish the shallow edges. Stay low!! You will need a motorized boat to get to where the good fishing exists.
