The Upper Sac. begins at the base of Box Canyon Dam on Lake Siskiyou (near the city of Mt. Shasta, CA). Its crystal clear water flows south for 40 miles through a beautiful mountain landscape, the towns of Dunsmuir and Castella and feeds Shasta Lake near Lakehead. Cold springs entering from the canyon walls, stream bed and tributary streams from side canyons, keep the water temperature good for trout all summer. Once rearing steelhead, salmon, and the Shasta Rainbow trout, the Sac. is now hailed as one of the most prolific wild trout streams in the west, boasting estimated populations from 3,000-7,000 trout per mile!

 

The Pit River originated from the Warner Mountains in the northeast corner of California, near Alturas, and drains the largest expanse of territory of any Sacramento River Tributary. It flows generally southwest through high desert, then drops into steep canyons below Lake Britton, near Burney. Fall River, Hat Creek and the McCloud River are among the many streams than contribute to the large volume of water that feeds the Pit River, leading to Shasta Lake. Conditions can vary greatly on this river with spring runoff, rain, and summer heat being some of the factors. When the conditions are right, the fishing can be unbelievable, with the average girthy rainbow sometimes measuring over 15 inches long.
