- April to November
About one and a half miles of the Little Shasta River headwaters are open to the public. These waters run through Martin’s Dairy Campground in a mountain meadow setting and are easily fished by the entire family.
Martins Dairy Campground has 8 family sites, and is open year round. There is also a Horse Camp about ¼ mile north of the main campground. Please note that horse trailer space is limited. The campground map or fishing map may be helpful in locating more information on specific areas.
A valid California state fishing license is needed to fish within the National Forest. Licenses are sold at sporting good and other retail stores. For information on fishing times & limits a current state fishing regulation guide is generally available free at these same locations. For more information contact California Department of Fish & Game.
