Visited this area in June 2015 to hike Lassen Volcanic National Park. Take a look see at those pics.

This trip I planned on Fly Fishing Hat Creek. Thats about all I did was fish. The Trout are still laughing! LOL The Hat Creek Wild Trout Stream was a lot of fun and challenging.

Hat Creek is located in Shasta County in northern California. It originates in Lassen Volcanic National Park and flows north to its terminus in Lake Britton. The Wild Trout Area consists of a three and one-half mile length beginning at the Hat #2 powerhouse and continuing to the rough fish barrier where the creek meets Lake Britton.

All pictures will be of fishing locations prior to actually fishing.
