Lake Shasta fishing report by Phil’s Fishing Tackle

Shasta Lake - Shasta Lake, CA (Shasta County)

by RB Bass

Bass Bite is good. Fish are being caught from the bank out to 30ft. The topwater bite is picking up. Whopper ploppers and spooks are the baits of choice. Also shad pattern crankbaits and spinnerbaits. Underspins paired up with keitech swimbaits and ripbaits also producing. As for the trout and kokanee the bite has been good. Best fishing time has been between 5:30am and 10 am. After that its been a struggle. Trolling jr optimizers, humdingers, speedy shiners and vance sniper spoons tipped with a night crawler and scented with Pautzke fire gel is the way to go. Anglers are finding the trout and kokanee in the 20-40ft range.

Trolling that 15-30ft range then once you find them throw spoons. ...... Read More
