Hat Creek Fishing Report

The Fly Shop

Report Date:


The second half of May on Hat will have us throwing large Stonefly patterns up under the overhanging tree branches. For now, fish are eating Rubberlegs in the downstream sections. Continue to keep your eyes peeled for Green Drakes. Callibaetis will be found in the slower sections between the Powerhouse 2 Riffle and the 299 bridge. The PMD hatches should become more prolific and consistent day to day this week. Bring your Hackle Stackers, Griffith's Gnats, and a stealthy approach. The PMD Challenged in #14, Milla Time May PMD #16, Sparkle Stacker PMD #18, and the Mayfly Cripple Limeston #16 are good dries during a hatch. Nymph-wise, the BP Weiss nymph, X-Mays in #18, or Sweet Peas are great to have along with some Peaches n' Green. And please remember to respect other anglers and the spawning Rainbows.

Hot Flies:
