Shasta Lake

Beauty Abounds in Shasta County, California

Shasta Lake is part of the Shasta Trinity National Forest and supports more than a dozen type of game fish, including Largemouth Bass and Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Rainbow and Brown Trout, landlocked Salmon, Sturgeon, Crappie and more. Damming three major rivers, the Sacramento River, the McCloud and Pitt rivers, created Lake Shasta. In the 1940s, the dam became the center for the Central Valley Project, and Shasta Dam became the second largest dam in the United States, with 6.5 million cubic yards of concrete, standing 602 feet tall and spanning more than 3,000 feet.

Lake Shasta and Mount Shasta on a Clear Day

Back in the 1930s, the construction of Shasta Dam required an amazing infrastructure of communities known as Central Valley, Project City and Summit City. These communities are known as the City of Shasta Lake. The town incorporated in 1993 and continues to be the gateway to the massive lake and it’s impressive dam. The city has emerged into it’s own identity. The City plans to break ground on the first phase of it’s new Civic Center Complex which will include a law enforcement center and City Council Chambers.
