Hat Creek Fly Fishing

The term "selective" Trout probably originated here. The "wild" Trout section offers some of the most challenging Trout fishing you will ever encounter. The heavy hatches of mayflies, caddis and stone flies are remarkable to experience and observe.

Hat Creek is the ideal stream for learning the art of fly fishing, as it requires close attention to fly selection, delicate, precise casts and constant line management to achieve the drift needed to catch these Trout. Spend a day on Hat Creek, and your day will end with good memories and a smarter angler. All fishing on Hat Creek is done from the banks and wading only.

Fall River Valley Fly Fishing

The Fall River Valley consists of several connected rivers and lakes, and is ranked as one of the largest spring fed systems in the world, offering some of the finest Spring Creek and Stillwater fly fishing for "wild" Trout in the USA. The Fall River Valley is a remarkable watershed with endless fly fishing opportunities for trophy size Rainbows and Brown Trout.

For the avid dry fly fisherman, the Fall River offers a variety of prolific mayfly hatches, from the smallest Caenis species to the largest of large, Hexegenia libata. The prolific mayfly hatches provide "spinner falls" that last for hours, so heavy on sections of the's like snow!

The caddis hatches on the Fall River can be very heavy at times, primarily on warm Summer and Fall evenings, providing some of the best fishing of the day...swinging soft hackles and emergers or skating little dries can really get exciting, to say the least! The nymph and streamer fishing is always happening and will generally produce the greatest number of trophy size Trout throughout the season. Streamer fishing the lakes and lower Fall River has produced many fish of a lifetime for several anglers!

The Fall River Valley is a very special place, offering excellent fly fishing, breath taking scenery, abundant wildlife viewing, peace of mind, and memories to last a lifetime. All fishing in the Fall River Valley is boat fishing only.
