Montana Spring Fly Fishing Report-Rock Creek Salmonflies Forecast

"Just eat it!"
Skwala fishing was very good this spring. We saw plenty of action despite the almost daily snow storms.  The weather was tough but there were some very large trout taken on dries, beginning as early as March 10th. While there are still some great hatches on the Bitterroot, high water has interrupted the fishing. Think caddis and big mays if you go. The local rivers might come back in for a few days but it won't last long. 
   Rock Creek looks just about right for June.  Snow-pack levels are average which means that flows should come in about the 10th of the month. If you head out to the creek this week try a worm, price rr special.  I also think that there might be some good dry fly fishing in the afternoons.

Mike O. from Cheese-land with RFO guide G.Pace.  These guys hit some of the coldest weather of the month but had pretty dang good fishing. We had several fish over the 20" mark over the four days that they fished. 

Typical weather this spring. The fishing didn't really suffer, though. We are already booking for next skwala season so keep it in mind. We had full schedules this spring and I expect the same for '14.  If you want to guarantee getting the best guides, book early.
