Today was day two of a two day trip with a couple of my great clients from down south.  We fished Shasta Lake today and battled the big winds we experienced on the main body of the lake.  We started off slow again today, but had a cooler stuffed with limits of big trout by the end of the day.  The trout are still biting below 100' feet and are fairly concentrated in areas where you find bait.  Painted spoons work best early, but when the sun is on the water switching to silver/holo spoons and UV dodgers works well!
