Rock Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Double nymph rig with a stone and worm is the way to pick up fish right now but if the water flattens out it should be getting good for dries any day. A dry/dropper is always a good option even if you don't see fish looking up.
Streamer fishing is hit or miss with the water on the rise. Fish very soft seams, back into the bank, and dead water. Slow swing leaving your bugs in there as long as possible.

Seven-day forecast 

There is rain in the forecast all week and into the weekend.
Please keep in mind...the creek is big and pushing, be careful up there! Salmon flies will be popping here and there along the Creek but be careful.

For up to the minute reports, please call our Missoula fly shop at 406.542.7411.
Our Philipsburg store is up and running, 406-859-9500...
Stop in and say hi to Sam Kellum and Bruce.
