Think of Fish Creek as a slightly smaller version of Rock Creek. This is a rugged and beautiful watershed and it’s a great place
to glimpse wildlife.

Fish Creek flows into the Clark Fork River near Tarkio, MT entering the Albert Gorge section of the river. The lower eight
miles run mostly through a steep canyon accessible only by foot. This is pretty rough water but large pools hold trout. The upper 7 miles of the Creek are followed by a logging road.

This is popular water , but you will find rainbows, cutthroats, and brookies.

Insect hatches are very diverse and the trout rarely get selective. Most of the fish measure under 16 inches but they are willing feeders in this bouncing stream

Flies: Updated list will be provided to signups in July.
