Today we fished Shasta Lake with finding a few big browns and then getting some limits of planter size reainbows for my clients to take home.  Mission accomplished!  Fishing continues to be quite good on Shasta and Its likely to continue into summer.  If you want a shot at a trophy class brown, give e a call!  My April dates are slowly filling, but I expect with all this great fishing, April trips will be gone in the next few weeks.

*Boat safety bulletin;

Shasta is on the rise and is pulling wood debris off its banks.  Wind is pushing debris fields and some pretty big logs around the lake so be careful when running your boat.
