Of the Missoula-area streams, Rock Creek gets its salmonflies first because it clears faster than the big guys.

This month, trout will also be sipping golden stoneflies off the surface. They start a couple of weeks after the salmonflies and are a bigger hatch.

The big bugs will be most active in the warmth of the afternoon, so that is when to cast your Clarks Stonefly, Stimulator, MacSalmon, or similar imitation into pocket water and along the banks where the water is over two feet deep. The best fishing is from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

Caddis are also important, so bring size 14-16 Elk Hair Caddis or X Caddis for fishing on top, and Sparkle Pupas for fishing near the bottom and just subsurface. Evenings will be best for the caddis.

On cloudy days you might see some green drakes on the water.
