Are you ready for some fishy fun in February? Try Rock Creek. With air temps in the 40’s and low 50’s Rock Creek has been producing good amounts of midge activity in the mid-to upper sections over the past couple of weeks. The best time to fish Rock Creek is usually between 11 am and 3 pm daily.
Some sections are a bit better than others. Several of my Rock Creek buddies have been nailing nice cuts, rainbows and browns up to 15 inches using dry midge patterns size 18-22. The lower to mid-parts of Rock Creek are producing larger fish up to 17 inches using small streamers and a very slow retrieve. For those of you who are nymph fisherman, Pat’s rubber legs size 10-14 have been working in some of the deeper runs.
There’s no more excuses about having nothing to do in February. Get out there, and enjoy the weather and very good fishing on Rock Creek!

Good Luck! John Perry
