Today we fished Shasta Lake and although the bite wasn't red hot, we did catch some really nice quality trout.  A lot less bass were pestering our baits today, I'm sure that helped. I'm seeing lots of bait, but not all of the trout are stuffed with them.  Its starting to look like summer, but we're still a ways off from the wide open fishing we're used to this time of the year.
