Shasta has a good bite going on now in the Jones Valley area for the cats. I'm hoping to be heading there Saturday night to dunk some livers. I've never heard of cats out of Whiskeytown, then again, I've never heard of anybody trying.

The crappie were hammered on Shasta in the years past, and they've never really recovered. Lake Britton near Burney is your best bet for the slabs. Whiskeytown has plenty of bluegill, but also lacks on crappie. Hope this helps.
