Hat Creek Fly Fishing Report

Hat Creek 

The crick is fishing well and is pretty consistent this time of year. Cloudy and rainy afternoons can lead to epic conditions! I like fishing Hat and Pit 3 in the same day for a contrast of experiences (nymphing Pit early and then hunting w/ dry flies on Hat for the evening). Or fish Fall River and then Hat for another change of pace. Look for lots of small caddis on the entire stream… the evening migration has been stunning and intense but the fish are not on them unless they drop. The PH2 riff is kicking off insane yellow Sally stones while the lower river will have a lot of salmonfly waiting to go off at last light.
