Blue Ribbon Trout Fishing on Rock Creek in Montana

Blue Ribbon Trout Fishing

With more than 2000 fish per mile, Rock Creek is a crystal-clear river that divides the Sapphire and the John Long Mountains in Western Montana. Rock Creek offers some of the best fly fishing in Montana.

Easy River Access

Access to the river is ample between the 1 and 32-mile markers. In the first 12 miles, there are fishing accesses about every 2 miles, with turn-outs for parking in numerous places. Between the 12 and 32 mile markers, most of the land is part of the Lolo National Forest. National Forest lands are open to the public. Above the 32 mile marker, access is limited to bridge crossings and places where the river meets Rock Creek Road.

Montana Fly Fishing

From the upper reaches of the river to its confluence with the Clark Fork River, Rock Creek boasts awesome fly fishing. Fish dry flies April through October.

Lots of Hiking Trails

The Lolo National Forest surrounds the cabins. There are numerous hiking trails that begin in the Rock Creek Valley. Favorite hiking trails include Trail 10, Welcome Creek, and Grizzly Creek. Trail 10 is located near the Valley of the Moon – mile marker 2. The trail is steep but the views of the valley are worth it!

Welcome Creek begins at the swing bridge near mile marker 14. Cross the bridge over Rock Creek and follow the trail up the Welcome Creek drainage. Grizzly Creek Trail is found off Ranch Creek Road. The trailhead is very scenic. The woods trail winds along Grizzly Creek. There is a picnic area near the trailhead.

Cabin Reviews

5 star ratingRock On! We have stayed this cabin several years in a row and it keeps getting better. All the things a high end cabin should have, plenty of room. One of the best locations you can get for a fishing trip on Rock Creek. The porch is an unbelievable place to sit, wind down and tell fish stories while you watch the valley fall asleep.

Owners are great, super helpful if need anything!

5 star ratingSawmill Cabin We stayed the Sawmill Cabin and it was much more than we expected. The cabin was clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We soaked in the hot tub and was able to take in the mountain scenery. Very convenient to fishing and other day trips to explore western Montana.

Great Location For Trout Fishing

Adjacent to the Sawmill Fishing Access, the blue ribbon river, Rock Creek, is just steps away. Pull on your waders and fish for cutthroat, rainbow, and brown trout.

Or grab the camera and snap pictures of bighorn sheep grazing in a nearby field or on the lawn of the cabin!

Missoula Lodging Alternatives

Visit family or friends in Missoula, Montana without having to stay in Missoula. Hike the Welcome Creek wilderness area; just a few miles from the cabin. Or just take in the sights and beauty of the mountains and the beautiful Rock Creek Valley.

Comfortable Cabin with Hot Tub

Comfortably furnished, our Sawmill Cabin features a fully equipped kitchen, an outdoor living area with a hot tub, a comfortable living room with gas fireplaces, Starlink wireless internet, and YouTube television. Tastefully furnished and well equipped, the Montana Rock Creek Cabin “Sawmill” is a warm and inviting vacation rental.

Open Year Round

We are open in the winter for winter fishing on the creek, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Our Sawmill Cabin remains open all year. Spend the holidays on the Creek! We are located on a plowed, county road.

In late March, the weather warms and the fishing picks up. April fishing can be terrific – just before the run-off. May warms the winter’s snowfall and the river is swollen. June is when the river has its famous salmonfly hatches. The Golden Stone hatch follows in late June. July through October bring some of the season’s best fishing. In fall, upland bird hunt for mountain grouse on the Creek or hunt whitetail deer.
