Same story this weekend on Shasta Lake as was told last week.  Not much has changed since my last report.  Great water conditions all week with some really nice fish landed as well.  3.5 mph trolling Trinidad Tackle #3 & #4 Oprimizers has been the best producer again this weekend.  The drawdowns for flood control on Shasta has begun but she's still on the rise, especially during the past few days and all the rainfall her in Shasta County.  The bite will continue to improve into March when the big brown bite peaks.  Call or tect Jaynie at 530-510-2925 for more information and available dates.
