In the past week Rock Creek has dropped and cleared and the fishing is good-but not great. Mornings have been good with brown Marvins, brown girdle bugs, hares ears, and size 8 prince nymphs. Early afternoon to early evening we have been having our best luck with darkened Rogue’s Golden stones sizes 8 and 10, size 8 and 10 Bugmeisters, and some darker Skwala stone fly imitations. Small darting action with the Rogue’s patterns have been very effective.
A Lot of the fish are still up some of the smaller tributaries-so most of the fish being caught are small, but still lots of fun. Don’t forget to try dropping off a size 10 prince nymph about 20 inches below the larger dry pattern.
Good luck out there and be sure to check current water flows prior to hitting the water!
