Rock Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

In the mornings fishing smaller dries like a PMD and a rusty Spinner can be good. Soon as it hits about 11am switch to a hopper dropper rig and fish that on all seams, behind rocks, basically anything that looks like it could hold fish (odds are their is a fish there). In the evenings you can switch over to a caddis with a spinner behind it and have some fun with the big caddis hatch.

Streamer fishing is hit or miss, so we've heard. Fish very soft seams, back into the bank, and dead water. Slow swing leaving your bugs in there as long as possible.

Don't count out the dead/back waters... we've been picking fish up in any slow water.
