OUR REPORT

Rock Creek spring fly fishing

7 DAY OUTLOOK –

Water is on the way up with warmer daytime temperatures. Wading across the creek will become difficult to impossible, but the fish will move into structure along the banks.

TIPS OF THE WEEK –

1. Try prospecting with dries. Skwalas, march browns, blue wing olives, and midges have all been active. We are looking out for caddis as well!
2. If dries are not working, chironomids, small dark nymphs, and larger stonefly nymphs have been fishing well.
3. Walk the banks and target walking speed water near structure, along the bank you’re walking on.

BEST TECHNIQUES – Prospecting with dry flies and nymphing.

Good luck and don’t forget to stop in our Philipsburg shop Flint Creek Outdoors and our NEW JACKALOPE JOE’S espresso bar! We’re open 7:30-5 seven days a week. Be sure to stop in to talk to Josh, grab a coffee, some Orvis gear, and flies from the the best fly selection in the region.
