The Pit River originated from the Warner Mountains in the northeast corner of California, near Alturas, and drains the largest expanse of territory of any Sacramento River Tributary. It flows generally southwest through high desert, then drops into steep canyons below Lake Britton, near Burney. Fall River, Hat Creek and the McCloud River are among the many streams than contribute to the large volume of water that feeds the Pit River, leading to Shasta Lake. Conditions can vary greatly on this river with spring runoff, rain, and summer heat being some of the factors. When the conditions are right, the fishing can be unbelievable, with the average girthy rainbow sometimes measuring over 15 inches long.
