On July 1st all boats commercial and recreational are required to stop floating. Rock Creek is then managed as a wade fishing only destination for the rest of the year. Rock Creek does enjoy great Caddis, Green Drake, and PMD hatches but really the fly angler with the small attractor patterns is king here. Rock Creek trout are accommodating and plentiful. Sneaking along the banks of a now midsized creek with a size 12 dry fly surrounded by the pristine canyons of Lolo National forest is a relaxing break from a guided drift boat fly fishing float trip that is common on the Blackfoot River, Clark Fork River, and Bitterroot River. Stretch your wading legs and enjoy the simplicity that is Rock Creek.
