Rock Creek

Tip of the week 

With the Creek on the rise nymphing is definitely your best bet for right now... A Hot Bead San Juan with an additional nymph dropper (choose your favorite) seems to be the for sure thing to lock up some fish. Typically they will stack up just below the riffles in the head of the deeper runs but don't count out the dead/back waters... we've been picking fish up in slow water.

Seven-day forecast 

Unfortunately cold, snowy and cloudy weather expected again and the river is jumping. That means the best fishing will be on the upper river and you won't be alone. This will likely be the best game in town for a few days.
For up to the minute reports, please call our Missoula fly shop at 406.542.7411.

Good luck from the team at Blackfoot River Outfitters and Flint Creek Outdoors! FCO in Pburg will be back open for the season by mid April. Be sure to stop in for your Orvis gear and the best fly selection in the region.
