Lake Shasta

Shasta Lake is one of the largest lakes in the western United States with 365 miles of shoreline when full. It is the largest in CA. The lake depends on snowmelt each spring to refill the lake. The lake is the primary source of water flowing into the Sacramento river north of Redding, CA about 10 miles. There are 5 rivers that flow into Shasta. The Sacramento, McCloud, Squaw, Pit are the four main rivers. There are 5 main arms of the lake where many species can be caught. The main species fished for are King Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, all three species of bass, catfish and sunfish. There are even sturgeon in Shasta. The spring months are some of the best fishing before the summer hits with all the boat traffic and houseboaters.
