Rock Creek Fishing Report + Rating


May 5, 2024

Rock Creek has fished well this last week.  March Browns and BWO’s are out in force and we are starting to see Gray Drakes and Mother’s Day Caddis as well. Some of these hatches can be annoyingly thick in the afternoon! Be ready with all the above as you never know what the fish are wanting in each area of the Creek. Try a Jig Duracell, SH Hare’s Ear, Pheasant Tail or Prince behind a large Pat’s Rubberlegs/T.J. Hooker or worm. Nymphing or swinging a streamer has been productive in the morning before the hatches start rolling. Later in the day, you can prospect with a Brindle Chute, Purple Haze or your favorite mayfly attractor. Streamer fishing has been on fire, particularly with small flashy streamers. Yellow, olive, JJ and white has the trout of the Creek all worked up.  JJ Specials, Yum Yum’s, Space Invaders, Mason’s Juniors, Baby’ Gonga’s and Lil Kim’s. The forecast shows rain in the next few days, which will undoubtedly change the clarity and flows of the Creek. Fishing could be tough for the next few days with this push of water. Be careful wading in those flows, as Rock Creek can get swift and slippery.

Montana SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent % of Normal

SWE is an acronym for Snow Water Equivalent, signifying the quantity of liquid water present in snow. Essentially, if you were to take a certain snow depth and melt it, the resulting water height would be representative of the SWE. This is how we can predict river flows and water levels for fishing season.
