Lots of Salmon flies on the bushes up Rock Creek. The past couple of rainy days earlier in the week tend to stall the flying of the salmon flies-but there has been enough flies on the water to stimulate the trout.

Most of the fish are ranging from 10 to 14 inches and the little browns seem to be plumper than the cutthroat. All kinds of darker orange salmon fly patterns are working-dead drifting and sometimes skittering.

Good mid-afternoon hatches of green drakes on the slicks make for some fun fishing too. Best patterns reported seem to be green drake cripples, parachute olive adams type patterns, and good floating extended body green drake patterns.

Now that the water is fairly low, fisherman are finding that the fish are not just close to the banks-but out in the middle as well. Anyway, if you have a bit of time to fish-Rock Creek is an excellent bet now and should be for a couple of weeks.
