Not much changing here, there are a lot of smaller fish up top in the Power House 2 riffle. Early morning outing can catch some good Trico hatches. Fish small midge patterns high in the Power House 2 riffle, or try swinging leeches or damsel nymphs in the slower sections up near cut banks. Early morning and late evening are your best bet to spot fish coming up for mayflies, the evening best for caddis.

Swinging leeches and streamers is a proven technique anytime on Hat Creek.

The flat waters below the Power House Riffle can offer a chance to cast dry flies to rising fish. As a matter of fact, just throw dries to see what happens!

Get on this river early and then again late if you want to find the biggest fish. The fish here are haters of the sun. Haters gonna hate. Go have fun!
