Area streams and rivers are rising fast! Stephanie and Noah from Billings via Houston wade fished Rock Creek with me yesterday. Stephanie hammered this 22 inch rainbow on her first day with a fly rod! Yeah, I said 22 inches. On the tape. From Rock Creek. Stephanie is my hero.
With the start of run-off, fishing our streams and rivers will be challenging to say the least. As you can see from the photo above, Rock Creek was off color and it’s worse today. Fishing in dirty water means stripping or dead drifting something big and black. This fish ate a black wooly bugger.
Stay tuned for lake fishing reports. Just because the streams blow out is no reason not to fish!
