I fished Shasta Lake the past two days and found a good bite, but its not long lived.  I've been marking a lot of fish at 40', but fish are showing up deeper later in the day.  We've managed to get into a few browns this week, and some quality rainbows as well.  The Kokanee bite is pretty dependable, but I think the biggest Koke's are still being caught up at Hirz Bay.  The lower lake is fishing pretty good for Kokanee as well, but I think a lot of them are next years spawners at 10"-11" now.  The fishing is going to get better and better and we will have plenty of water to play in!
