Wild trophy trout waters are both highly technical and suited for novices. Upper reaches offer good put-and-take fishing. Rising on the slopes of Lassen Volcanic National Park, Hat Creek is a bustling little freestone stream that hustles down the mountain and breaks into the valley floor below Old Station. There it slows and begins to meander through meadows where livestock, fenced from the creek, graze. Banks are laden with heavy brush, which sweeps the water and provides cover for browns and rainbows. In the upper reaches, Hat Creek is a put-and-take stream, heavily stocked. There is, however, some natural reproduction. Mileage in the park and the abutting Lassen National Forest is open to public angling but once bounded by private land, access becomes limited to guests in the lodges along its course. Species: Rainbow, brown. Angling methods: spin, and fly-fishing.
