Hat Creek Report

6.2.2017

Some nice fish coming out of Hat Creek. Large salmon flies have been out during the day in small numbers and Golden Stones have been coming out in the evening. 

You can expect to see PMD hatches in the flat water above 299 in the evening. Use a long 12ft 5x leader and throw 3ft of 6x fluoro on the end of that for best results.

This is a great time to fish large dries below 299 bridge to the lake. 

Hat creek is not any easy...

The Intermountain region continues to produce numerous trout for the avid angler. On the Fall River, the Hex hatch is slowing down though there are still episodes of big beautiful rainbows gobbling up Hexagenia Limbata Mayflies after sunset. This annual hatch is something special to experience.
