Northern California: , by Mike Wright: Scouting the "New" Hat: 3 stars
Spent another day scouting the conditions in Northern California. Spent an afternoon and evening walking and fishing Hat Creek. The water level was higher than normal for Hat Creek, but didn't present any issue with fishing except for wading the upper end of the Powerhouse #2 riffle. Walked the entire new access trail from the 299 bridge to the parking lot at Powerhouse #2.  It was good to see anglers spread out all up and down the river and not just packed into the riffle.  There was an abundance of weeds, bugs, and a consistant amount of fising fish at the lower end of this section.  Some anglers I watched were successful on dries.  I spent about an hour or so fishing and had success on dries over weed beds and behind structure, and then ended the night catching a number of fish nymphing the riffle.  Good things ahead for Hat Creek.
The new access trail allows for anglers to access all of the river.
Good weed beds.
Such a great place to spend the day.
Beautiful colors on the Hat Creek Rainbow
