Hat Creek is a 40-mile (64 km) long stream in Northern California. The creek rises in two forks on the eastern slopes of Lassen Peak in Lassen Volcanic National Park, and flows northward through Lassen National Forest to its mouth at Lake Britton near Burney, California.

The lower three and a half miles of the creek has been designated by the California Department of Fish and Game as a "Wild Trout" waterway, with restrictive catch limits. This area has a similar geology to the chalk streams of southern England, and is considered a classic trout stream. The trout population is made of wild rainbow and brown trout of up to 20 inches in length.
