Northern California: , by Mike Wright: Changes to Hat Creek: 3 stars
I spent a few days working and scouting the Hat Creek area over the weekend.  There are many changes that I think anglers will benefit from (and a few that they might not).  I visited and walked the entire length of Cal Trout's restoration project on the trophy section of Hat Creek.  There were many additions to the area including a trail improvement project for angler access, various plantings of shorline vegetation, wooden structure added to the creek for fish habitat, and the most notable, a pedistrian bridge for creek crossing at Carbon Flats.  The project is quite extensive and is progressing nicely.  You can read and view a video at Cal Trout's website if you would like more information.  One addition to the area that I didnt' care for was the addition of some fencing at the Cassel Flats area.  I know that safety comes first, but fly anglers will be challenged with access to a couple spots that typically are good spots for catching planted trout.  Your nets will really need to be long now!  Anyway, excited to see what the project at Hat Creek brings to the area.  Been fishing there since I was a kid and can't wait for it to return to its former self.
Bogey doing fish counts!
Pedestrian Bridge at Carbon Flats
Hopefully the home to a new crop of z grass and wild rainbows!
Nice and wide! The new trail starting at Powerhouse #2 and wandering all the way to Carbon Flats
Lots of new plantings to someday catch a fly on!
What? Safety first at the Cassel Flats!
