I fished Shasta Lake the past few days with Zack and Stella looking for some big trout.  Yesterday we hit our fish early in the day and today it was just the oposite.  We put in full days and managed to catch some quality fish both days.  We caught mostly rainbows, but did catch some bass and a few baby Kings as well.  We dealt with lots of small debris today, but it didnt hinder our trolling too much.  The water is a little stained, but still green.  Water temps are running about 48-49 degrees just about everywhere in the lower lake.  All our fish were caught above 20'.
