I just got back from my annual “Guys Fishing Trip to Hat Creek” in Northern California. I’ve been fishing with the same group of guys at Hat Creek on Memorial Day Weekend for the past 30 years. We probably know every rock in the stream. Nymph fishing was great in the mornings with #14 yellow sally nymphs fished with Czech Nymphing methods. I used my 9′ 0″ 3 wt Czech Nymphing Bamboo Fly Rod and picked up quite a few nice fish in the 15″ to 18″ range. Here are a couple of photos of our time at Hat Creek.
Fishing one of my favorite runs on Hat Creek with Curt, Ken, and Paul.
A nice 18″ rainbow that took a #14 Yellow Sally Nymph.
Lots of color on this 17″ rainbow.
Another pretty 16″ rainbow and my Czech Nymphing Bamboo Fly Rod.
