Blue Ribbon Trout Streams
Rock Creek is one of several blue ribbon trout streams in Montana. Rock Creek has more than 2000 fish per mile, quite remarkable given its size. While fishing a blue ribbon stream does not guarentee fishing success, the odds of having a great day on the water go up dramatically. Match the hatch, have accurate casts, and drag-free drifts in fishy spots for best fishing success.
Montana Trout Fishing Vacations
Plan an extended Montana fly fishing vacation and fish three of Montana’s Blue Ribbon Trout Streams. Stay on Rock Creek in a Montana Rock Creek Cabin, then head over to the Big Hole River and stay at the Silver Bow Club. Then head out and fish the “50-Mile Riffle”, aka the beautiful Madison River and stay at the Rainbow Valley Lodge in Ennis.
What is a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream?
A Blue Ribbon fishery is a designation made in the United States to identify recreational fisheries of extremely high quality. Official Blue Ribbon status is generally based on criteria which address water quality and quantity, water accessibility, natural reproduction capacity, and angling pressure.
