Hat Creek Fly Fishing Guides - Burney, Cassel, Redding Area
Is one of California’s well renowned spring creeks that provides productive and predictable dry fly fishing for rainbows and the occasional brown trout. It’s waters stretch from Power House #2 on down to Baum Lake and the lower waters near the weir before joining the Pit River at Lake Britton.
We have guided this river since 1994 and have extensive knowledge in regards to hatches and approach when stalking stealthy trout that can be very selective depending on what they are dining on that particular day. We always look forward to the daily spinner hatches of mayflies and the afternoon caddis, as well as the annual Salmon Fly, Hexagenia, Drake & October Caddis hatches that trout go crazy for! Let us be your guide on a fabulous day together on Hat Creek, we like to dry fly fish, nymph and streamer fish all sections of this creek with tremendous success. We’ll provide all the flies for this adventure, you only need to show up with your fishing license in hand, hat & sun glasses, we can even provide all the gear for the day.
