Shasta Lake Fishing Report

Report Updated Jan. 10, 2014

GOOD BASS BITE

The lake is a mud puddle but spotted bass fishing remains good on wacky worms and drop shot along the main Rocky points.

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!

200-pound Sturgeon in Lake Shasta!
