    Default Shasta Water Level for Labor Day

    We're considering going to Shasta for Labor Day Weekend (never been). What's the lake level now and what do you regulars anticipate it being over the holiday weekend?

    Wow! If I'm reading this correctly, that's about 120 miles of shoreline lost...

    So - Having never been to Shasta, is it still decent for boating? Keep in mind I've done Nacimiento at 45% full and it was fine for us.

    If you're staying on a house boat,no problem. If your having to hike down 100' or so to your boat on the water, might be an issue.

    Grew up on this lake and there's still enough water to boat when it's down way more than 100'... HOWEVER, Napanutt makes a REALLY good point. 100 feet vertical is probably 500 feet of steep bank. The Jones Valley end (Pit River) will have some shore access by truck so you may find a spot to hang close to the water if you are trying to shore camp. Most of the marinas don't have ice and beer dockside, so you have to hoof it up and down. Unless you stair-climb for fun, it's a workout.

    Thanks for the info! We'll be making last minute plans if we decide to go. Anyone else going to be on Shasta for Labor Day?
