Rock Creek Season

Rock Creek Fly Fishing

Many thanks for another great season on Rock Creek. Some rain in the middle of the month caused a big bump in the water around the Missoula area but we made it through.

On that note- CAUTION: Please do not float the creek if you have not been down it with an experienced person at the oars, someone who has rowed it at several different levels. Sweeping log jams and swift currents make navigating the Creek a challenge. Please respect the water.

A big THANK YOU to Johnny and the folks at The Rock Creek Fisherman’s Mercantile. If you haven’t stopped in on your way up the creek, you’re missing out on a true gem. Every morning you can count on good information, flies, and a details about where the salmonflies, and other hatches, are on the creek.

Salmonflies

Anglers had some good sized brown trout rising to salmonflies early in the month. Another thank you to those who are helping some of the browns get a little bit bigger each year (you know who you are!).
