Battle Creek is a 16.6-mile-long (26.7 km)[2] creek located in Tehama County, California. It is a major tributary to the Sacramento River.

The creek is part of a $67 million Chinook salmon restoration project, a PG&E Battle Creek Hydroelectric Project. Many adjacent properties hold conservation easements protecting them from development.[3]

In addition to the Chinook salmon, the creek has steelhead trout, rainbow trout, and brown trout.
