I've been fishing Shasta Lake several days a week of late and I've been having great success at the 65'-70' depth line.  Today started out like most days on Shasta and we had a fish on the first rod I sent down.  We landed the first fish within a few minutes of dropping our first line.  It wasn't but a few minutes later and we had a 5 pound brown trout in the net.  the bite slowed early and the fish came a bit slower, but it was still a great day on the water, and as you can see, my clients went home with some very nice fillets.
