Rock Creek Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating

4/5

July 16, 2019

Rock Creek has dropped and stabilized. Its clearing by the minute and good to go.

PMDs, Yellow Sallies and a few Goldens are fly around. Spruce Moths will be around in the next week or two and that will really get the fish going. Right now a sz 12-14 Golden or sz 16 Sally is fishing great. A P-Haze or Para-Wulff is a great way to prospect as well. Fish are looking up!

Rock Creek Fishing Report

Fishing Report + Rating

5/5

July 5, 2019

Rock Creek is dry fly paradise right now with most fish looking up! Goldens, PMDs, Yellow Sallies, Green Drakes and Caddis are all on the menu right now. Start your day out with a Golden in a sz 12-14 with a PT, Prince or Reckoner Dropper. Later in the day switch to just a dry with a Golden, Yellow Sally or PMD depending on whats happening. If its cloudy (fingers crossed) you should see some Green Drakes. In the evening youll have caddis in a sz 16-18.

July 5

Rock Creek is closed to floating for the rest of the year and it is at a great level for wade fishing. The best dry fly action has been on the upper river with hatches of Golden Stones, PMDs, Green Drakes, and Yellow Sallies. Afternoons are best for the dry fly bite and anglers who cover a lot of water will be rewarded. Dry/dropper and nymph rigs will almost always produce on Rock Creek as well.
