Fishing is superb  in the Upper Hat Creek region. Brook trout are the most prolific trout and  is what is planted by the DFG.
Use worms or spinners are what is working right now. Other parts of the creek is showing mixed results.
California’s Hat Creek  is undoubtedly one of the most amazing trout fishing streams in  nation.  Fly, bait and lure fisherman all can enjoy Hat Creek a majority of which is open to bait anglers. 
Hat Creek starts high in the Northern California’s Lassen Volcano National Park in Shasta County.
The creek filters northerly into the town of Old Station on Highway 44, where for  the next 30 miles or so,  it reaches Cassel. See our Trout Fishing map for the best areas, and pay attention to the private fishing properties.
This area above Cassel is Upper Hat Creek and holds both planted and native trout that range from  14 inches. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife  stocks upper Hat Creek regularly so lure casters who toss Panther Martins, Super Dupers, Mepps and Rooster Tails will hook up.
 Bait fishers  who drift  salmon eggs, nightcrawlers, red worms or crickets who use  small hooks, light tackle, 4-pound test line and little weight  work best.. The creek is wide and has a even-flowing current that is also optimum for dry fly fishing.       
Lower Hat Creekis  situated in California’s northeastern  Shasta County.  Lower Hat  Creek can be reached by taking Highway 299 eastbound  from Redding, figure about a one hour drive.
Upper Hat Creek is best to take  Highway 44 east to the Highway 89 junction.  From Old Station all the way for  30 miles to Baum Lake. 
See our Trout Fishing map for all the info, which also shows some camping areas, there are a bunch of U.S. Forest Service campsites available along the  river.
Lower Hat Creek is  mainly a trout fly fishing area,  although lures with single, barbless hooks are acceptable.   Anglers who toss in the evenings  get good results on the lower river from 7 to 9 p.m. Good fishing will last through  July, then pick up again in September. 
   
The most popular flies are Golden stoneflies, Elk Hair Caddis, Midges and Rusty Spinners.    Flies can be fished everywhere too, as both nymphs  and dry fly patterns will entice trout to strike. Renegades, Rio  Grande,  Kings and Deer Hair Spiders are among the more useful patterns.  
Access is also decent  on upper Hat Creek, but be aware are two  sections that are private fishing , near Bridge Campground and  an seven mile section above Cassel.  
Much like its neighbor, Fall River, Hat Creek has so much natural food, the trout are discriminating so make your presentation as attractive as possible.  Glasses are a must  have to detect the rises.  
During the hot part of the day, look for places that have  shade. Later, dusk is when  you’ll  catch almost 90 percent of your fish!  Make sure your fly  drifts at the  same speed as the current, or you will spook them.
Lower Hat Creek is  a  native trout  fishery and anglers are allowed to keep only two fish per day.
