Where to find Fish and how to fish Lake Shastina


Great fishing not hard to find for trout,  bass and catfish. Lake Shastina has been one of  Northern California’s best kept secrets and is only minutes from two mayor interstates,  I-5 and Highway 97.
It has fantastic wide variety of cold and warm-water species.

Lake Shastina offers over 5 miles of shoreline  when full, plus many productive islands in the  lake. It hosts sizeable populations of rainbow and  brown trout, some to over 10 pounds, largemouth  bass, catfish, panfish, and some of the largest  crappie you‘ll ever catch.

The spring spawning period is the time when  catfish, black bass and crappie really turn on in  this lake the minute the surface water temperature  reaches 57 degrees. But until those surface waters warm,  trout trollers will do well on good-sized rainbows  and a few browns by sticking to the  deep water midlake channel  between the dam and the south  end. Blades and ‘crawlers work  best, but spoons and spinners,  wobblers and flies also are great for  Shastina trout.

Egg and night- crawler anglers also do fair from  shore.   Crappie are thick in all the rocky, shallow  areas near shore and around the  tree habitats placed in the lake in 1988. Fish to 3 pounds are not  at all uncommon here. Crappie  Killer jigs and crappie plastic jigs  in yellow, red and white, and pink.

Bass is good in warmer weather but prime time when temperatures send bigmouths to the shallows.  Try   Plug fishing for largemouth 2 to  5 pounds the best from April  through early May, then turns red-hot again in September and  October.

Work the rocky  shorelines at the west shore and  both ends of lake with deep-diving  crankbaits.  Surface  lures work well later with warmer  waters on the surface.

Catfish to 15 pounds come out  of this lake. Shore fishermen using nightcrawlers,  worms, chicken livers and cut mackerel or clams  can take limits of cats 2 to 17 inches. The south  end to the launch site is best in spring months; also  off dam and deep coves.

Panfish are everywhere, mostly green sunfish  that love to slap surface poppers and red worms.  Shallow shorelines in  rocky areas, particularly from the dam along the  west shore to the south end can produce. Bluegill  and redear sunfish are here as well. There are lots  of minnows, lots of feed for all species.

Lake Shastina has been terribly low in the wake  of northern California‘s three-year drought.  However, with the more recent rains the lake is on a  fast road to recovering. At press time the lake was  75 percent full and rising everyday

Location: In Siskiyou County, between state 5 and Highway 97.   Rainbow, brown trout, black bass,  crappie, catfish, sunfish.  Facility is located at the southern end of  the lake on Milkhouse island which can be  reached from the public access road off Jackson Ranch Road.

Season: Open year-round. . When to fish: Trout bite year-round; bass bite  best March-May than again September  and October; Crappie bite March, April;  Catfish hit in spring, summer.
