Hat Creek has some great riffles that set up perfectly for nymph fishing. A variety of stoneflies, caddis, and mayflies are all present in the creek. The flat waters of Hat Creek that wind through the valley also offer some of our favorite dry fly fishing. These Spring Creek fish don’t make it easy on anglers but walking the flat water looking for rising trout can offer some great chances for those looking to catch fish on the surface. Overcast days can be spectacular for dry fly fishing.
