Find New Roads Fishing the Rivers in Rock Creek [SPONSORED]
Just a short drive east of Missoula sits one of Western Montana’s greatest fishing destinations, Rock Creek. Only a handful of streams across the world can even compare to the fishing that this creek has to offer.
Unlike other streams, the fishing on Rock Creek is great year round, which is just one reason that it is a true fisherman’s dream. In fact, fly fisherman from all over the world come to Montana just to fish this unique stream.
According to Leo Larson, an ex-fly fishing guide who has guided clients on Rock Creek, “Rock Creek is a hallowed place for fly fisherman all over the world in late May due to the salmon fly hatch.”
The fish are in their prime during this bug hatch and the hard core fishermen do everything they can not to miss it.
“Fishing is not all that Rock Creek has to offer,” Larson said. “The snow capped mountains surrounding the creek are abundant with turkey, elk, deer, moose and even Big Horn sheep, which also makes Rock Creek a hunter’s paradise.”
Rock Creek is not only known for its fishing and wildlife. It would be remiss to not mention the world-famous Testicle Festival at Rock Creek. People flock from near and far to have a ball at this one of a kind festival. Come September, Rock Creek is flooded with party goers who enjoy music, drinks and fun.
No matter what Montana adventure you are looking to explore this year, whether it take you east Rock Creek or North to Seeley Swan, you can always find someplace to explore in Montana.
