In this special episode we discuss the recent change is water temperature releases from Shasta dam. In order to conserve the cold water pool, current temperatures in the Lower Sacramento River have risen nearly ten degrees. Host Matt Formento and co-host Darrin Deel chat with Lonnie Boles who has been guiding on the river for 30+ years and James Stone, the president and executive director of the NorCal Guides & Sportsmans Association. We chat about why the temperature has been increased as well as what we can do as anglers to help take care of the river.
