BIG BASS UP SHALLOW
The lake has been pumping out excellent spotted bass action in terms of numbers and size. The smaller, more numerous fish are down as deep as 35 feet and will eat jigs and drop-Shot gear.
The big ones –up to 8 pounds!! — are closer to the surface and are falling mainly for cranks, spinnerbaits and swim baits.

About Shasta Lake
The crown jewel of California reservoirs, Shasta has it all…epic scenery, awesome fishing and even plenty of room for lovers of, well, let’s just say water sports other than fishing. Just beyond the northern end of the Sacramento Valley, Shasta’s got landlocked king salmon, rainbow and brown trout to 10 plus pounds, tons of spotted bass, along with smallies and largemouth…not to mention a bunch of catfish, panfish and maybe even a sturgeon!
