Breath-taking scenery and arguably the best Salmonfly Hatch in the world are only two reasons why Rock Creek Fly Fishing should be on your hit list.
The fast flowing, cold, and clean water of Rock Creek is home to more trout than you can cast a fly at. Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Cutthroat Trout, and the Native Bull Trout all call Rock Creek home. Dry fly fishing is how The Creek got it’s reputation, but during the fall the numerous brown trout in the creek love to attack streamers.
Expert and beginner anglers alike will cherish a day spent on Rock Creek. If you can visit in June during the salmonfly hatch, there is no better way to fish than from a boat. Throwing huge dry flies to hungry fish in prolific numbers. That is why you fish Rock Creek.
Wade fishing the creek after the spring runoff is very accessible along the road (take it slow, some Class V potholes develop on that one), and come prepared to navigate the well known “slickery” river bottom. The Big Horn Sheep, Bull Moose, Bald Eagles, Salmonflies, and more trout that you have ever seen come together for a perfect fishing day in Montana. It all sounds good on paper, but you really just have to come see for yourself.
