Rock Creek, Utah Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Afternoon midge hatches are the best bet for a hatch. Look for fish hiding behind structure and in deeper holes. Try a Princess Nymph, Zebra Midge, Lightening Bug, Copper John, Zebra Midge, or Egg Pattern when fish aren't looking up. Try a parachute midge or Griffiths gnat when fish are rising.

Rock Creek Description

A scenic freestone stream, Rock Creek, runs cold and clear almost year-round. The upper stretches babble through evergreen forests and provide excellent pocket-water habitat for brookies, rainbows, and cutthroats.

Techniques & Tips

Nymphing using common nymphs and egg patterns is effective. Using Woolly Buggers through the deeper runs and bends is also working well.

7-Day Forecast

Highs in the 30s and lows in the single digits. Only a slight chance of snow throughout the week.
