Today was really good on Shasta Lake!  Tested some new Trinidad tackle spoons and we were getting doubles and a few triples.  We even had all 5 rods go off!!  Thats a first on my boat while fishing Shasta for sure.  3 limits of trout by 9:30 and lots of throw backs made for a long awaited day.  Everything has finally lined up and the trout fishing should be really good through Septembers end when the weather changes into a fall pattern.  30'-50' deep for all our fish this morning.
