BEST TECHNIQUES – Folks go to Rock Creek to catch fish on dry flies.. lots of fish on dry flies – and that is what is happening right now there. Start with the standard stone attractors (Chubbies, bulletheads,and foam) with a moderate dropper (15-20″) dangling a worm or prince, Once you get a few eats on the top or notice pmd’s or drakes out on the water swap the second bug up for double dry and fish tight to the willows.
TIPS OF THE WEEK – Under the clouds expect some dry fly activity this week. When your fishing the Creek keep your leaders short and heavy (7.5′ 3x or 2x) for the stones and one size less for your droppers. They are NOT leader shy.
7 DAY OUTLOOK – The Rock is still high for this time of year and floaters will be flying down the river till it drops another 600cfs. Waders should focus their attention on the upper reaches where it isn’t as pushy. Dry fly action will continue to break out especially the mayfly activity.
For up to the minute reports, please call our Missoula fly shop at 406.542.7411.
