Fishing is best in the early summer using fly fishing gear. The lower portion of the stream from the 54 road stream crossing upstream also has good angling for rainbow/redband trout. Fly fishing is the most effective angling technique in this portion of the stream.

The upper portion of Hidaway Creek also has a population of brook trout. To get there from Ukiah, drive east on highway 244 approximately 14 miles to the junction with the 54 road. Turn right onto the 54 road (heading south) and follow it approximately 1 mile to the junction with the 5440. Turn left onto the 5440 and follow it to the junction with the 075 spur. Turn right onto the 075 spur and follow it to the end of the road. At the end of the road, hike down the Chimney Rock ATV trail to the Hidaway Creek. From this point, the best fishing is downstream where there is more water.
