The creek is seeing less pressure and Hat would be a good option for some good fishing and sight seeing. October Caddis can be found on the lower sections north of Highway 299. Blue Wing Olives and Callibaetis are still hatching and the current class is small. Bring size #18 & 20 for the Callibaetis, and #16 or smaller for the PMDs. Nymph-wise, if you are fishing the flats, the BP Weiss nymph, X-Mays in #18, or Sweet Peas are great to have along with some Peaches n' Cream and Zallibaetis. Moving around and keeping your eyes peeled for hatches is the best tactic this time of year on Hat.
We are seeing the Bureau of Reclamation begin to draw the releases over the next several days on the river......
