When it's cloudy and cool in August (not a frequent event!), fish Rock Creek with tricos in the morning (not a strong hatch here), hoppers and hopper/dropper combos in the afternoon, and caddis in the evening. When it's hot, forget Rock Creek and fish elsewhere.

Red attractors, such as a red Turcks Tarantula, can be a favorite with Rock Creek's trout at this time of year, so make sure you have some in your fly box. Standard nymphs, such as Princes, Pheasant Tails, Copper Johns, Brassies, etc., will take trout during the day.

A few pale morning duns might linger into the first week of August.

In general, fishing will be best early and late in the day. It will remain that way until the weather begins to cool.
