Fished Shasta Lake on Saturday. Started in the cove at Bailey Creek where we launched and caught a 12 inch bass and a 19 inch salmon -- at the back of the cove at 8' deep! Trolled around the point toward the bridge and up into Packers Bay. Nothing happening. Ran over to Big Backbone and found the fish -- and the boats! Lots of bass fishermen hitting the small coves, and several trollers also. We started to get into the salmon -- all from 58 to 68 feet deep. Best lures were Indian Hart Special and black shad Excel spoons behind cannon ball flashers at 2.3 mph. Had a great day! Caught 16 salmon and 3 trout for the day. Weather was overcast and slightly breezy. Water temp 51 to 52 degrees.
