Shasta Lake has been producing some great fish and we're getting clients on limits of big fat trout when the bite is on.  The trout are really stuffed with Shad now and it would appear that the feeding frenzy has begun.  I'm still catching fish at 60' feet where temps are right at 60 degrees.  I normally fish warmer water this time of the year,but the big boys are biting 60' feet down.  We have lots of great fishing opportunities right now and Shasta Lake is one of them for sure!
