Small dark colored nymphs in #18-22 are the top bug early in the day. A selection of PMD and BWO duns should be in your fly box. You can get fish to chase after a dun imitation near sunset too. There's almost always at least one curious fish hanging around near sunset. You will find the most consistent fishing/hook-ups near the Power House #2 riffle. Bigger fish can found hunting the flats at sun up and near sun down. River closes to fishing Nov. 15. Lower Hat: Rim Rock Ranch (530) 335-7114; The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555

Current River Conditions: Fishing on Hat Creek is at it's best early, before the sun gets high in the sky and then right at sunset. Sparse hatches of #18-16 baetis and a few PMDs happen in the mornings. October Caddis are coming off near or after sunset. Review your fishing regulations for fishing after sundown! Swinging leeches on sink tips is a good way to find fish. Hat Creek closes for the season on November 15th.
