Flint Creek Description

Flint Creek winds down out the Pintlar Mountains, back and forth across the hay fields near Philipsburg. The meanders are so tight at times you could virtually fish two sides of a button hook at the same time. The miles of undercut grassy banks are home to wild brown trout that eagerly eat hoppers all summer long. Most of Flint Creek is private so please respect that and ask first before entering someone's ...

Techniques & Tips

A short dry/dropper rig is a good bet, the creek is low. It's still fishable. We would recommend maybe fishing Flint for a while and then head to upper Rock Creek as well! Streamer fishing will only get better from here on out!

7-Day Forecast

Highs in the lower 30's this week, nighttime low's in the single digits. Winter weather is finally here to stay and might be a while before it fishes again. Our Philipsburg store will be open occasionally through the winter months. Please call our Missoula shop for updates! 406-542-7411, happy fishing!
