With headwaters in Lassen Volcanic National Park, Upper Hat Creek is a rumbling mountain stream. People fish here with all forms of flies, lures, and bait. Anglers can camp streamside and haul in all sorts of hatchery trout. In the valley, highly regarded Lower Hat Creek is a blueribbon meadow-meandering wild trout stream. These 3.5 miles of river have all the ingredients many fly rodders dream about: gin-clear water, tricky currents, wild fish, and a complex food chain. Add this up and you’ve got quite a fly fishing test on a world-class trout stream. Types of Fish: Rainbow and brown trout. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
