Shasta Lake has had its good days and not so good days this winter, but the past few days have definitely seen an improvement in the big trout fishing game.  Today I fished with return clients Randy and Dick and we really had a good time.  The morning bite was slow so we changed plans real quick and found some new water to troll and it paid off in a big way.  Fishing was great for a good part of late morning and into the early afternoon.  By 2:00 the bite was over, but a good day was already had!  Three browns and several more big rainbows made for the perfect day!  I'm booking a few more dates in April and then Im starting my May schedule on Shasta Lake.
