Big Rainbow Trout are on the bite at Shasta Lake. These fat football's are gorging themselves on the shad, so find the shad and you will find the Trout. The fish are deep and can be found at depths between 70 and 110 feet. My Cannon Mag 20 down riggers made fishing these depths a snap. Sep's pearl dodgers and hammered gold provided the flash attraction, Pro-Cure shrimp/krill oil and Carpspit scents provided the smell on a variety of lures. Trolling at 1 to 2.5 mph in deep water provided steady action Rainbow trout in the 2 to 7 pound class most of the fish are averaging 3 to 4 pounds. Check out my pictures and  video they say it best. Give me a call or email me to get in on the action.
