Big browns, rainbows, and lots of Spots on Shasta Lake today!  It was a real cooker out there today and my face now matches my red shirt!  The water at Packers started at about 53 degrees this morning, but by days end I was seeing pockets of water up to 68 degrees.  Lots of stuff going on right now with the hot days we've seen this week.  Temps in the 90's will be reached by next week so things on Shasta are going to move fast!  The trout are still up high, but that should change real soon.  The bass bite is quite good, Justins group did well today and they took home limits of keeper size bass!  There are just a few days in April available for Shasta bass or Sac River rainbows.  May's schedule is filling right on pace, so if you want to fish in May now is the time to get in touch with me and get your trip locked down.
