Hat Creek - Northern California, California Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Has continued to fish well, some really nice fish being caught. The spinner fall has been good up in the fast water, and evening hatches have been great. Small dark mayfly patterns have been working well under the bobbercater. Warmer weather this next week should make some bugs pop!
