CA Pit River, Number Three Dam
Marker Description: The Pit River consists of a series of dams and reservoirs that stretch for some 30 miles from Lake Britton to Shasta Lake.

Each section of the pit is separated by a numbered dam. The release from the dam contributes to the experience and what you see.

There are big rocks and boulders; the fish are wild and grow to a large size as a result of the catch and release ethic. The most productive area of the river - Pit 3 - is a designated wild trout fishery and subject to special regulations. The entire river is barbless hook only.

Nymphs - 18 red copper johns rigged as a dropper off of either a larger copper john or a Prince Nymph.

All in all the Pit has plenty of roadside fishing areas that are matched with an equal number of trails that lead off down a steep to great fishing promised land at the bottom.
