Triumph191,
I donít know about Shaver but I have always done well out at McSwain. Itís not a big lake but they stock it all the time sometimes fish and game. Other times Calaveras will plant some nice size. My question to you where is Shaver? Never herd of that Lake. Lake McSwain will cost you $12.00n for the day. If you hit McSwain Let us know how you do. Good Luck

Shaver is located East of Fresno up the 168. Right now I would fish McSwain because you have a better chance at landing a quality fish and it's not quite as cold. McSwain has nice facilities and generally the majority of fish are caught between floating restroom and the point. Hope this helps out Rich. Take care....

Rich,

If this was my decision, I would fish McSwain one day and Shaver the next. Hope that helps.. LOL

Shaver, unless you have never fished McSwain and just want to fish something different.

About an hour and 30 minutes. But with the fog I had this morning coming south it could be a problem. Be safe....

Congrats on the little one..... I am sure you are proud.

Greg,

Thanks for the info. Little Beau is 2 months old and getting big. We took him in today for his shots. That was not fun. Are you still working in So.Cal? Are we going to do another Fest this year at Pine Flat?

I think a snifferfest #2 at pine flat is a good idea.The lake is very low though.

I went to McSwain Monday the 19th. And only managed 2 fish, lost 2 15ft of the boat for 4 total bites. :( The usual setups didn't work. Used an orange scented Sep's grub w/copper green/orange slingblade to get the bite.
