Creek Opener

May 17th is the third Saturday in May, What does this mean…? All the creeks that have been closed since November 30th will open to fishing once again.  They have been unfished for 4 long months and are chalk full of hungry rainbows and cutties finishing their spring spawn.

A Beautiful Fish from the 2013 Creek Opener

Every day this week I’ve heard “I cant wait until runoff is over so I can fish again.”  Well the good news is that most of the creeks are running clear.  They may be high, but many are certainly fishable.

Small Creek Fishing
You may be surprised by the size of the fish you find in these tiny creeks. We were.

This is your chance to go and find that sneaky spot and catch big fish in small water.  So go explore something new this weekend, or go to your favorite unknown creek, it doesn’t matter just get out and go fishing!
