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 ratingGreat place on Rock Creek!! For my birthday, my awesome wife bought me and my buddy 4 nights at the SawMill Cabin for a fly fishing trip to MT. The location is quite exquisite, in a valley with a couple of other cabins around us but saw very few people while we were there. My friend who is in construction immediately started raving about how nice the cabin was and started inspecting all of the things I would never notice. He said it was exactly the kind of cabin he has been talking about building for himself back home in the NE. Everything is provided for you here, you are really in someone's house and you can tell it is cared for. Everything felt quite new, or perhaps redone, but it is all very nice. We enjoyed the hot tub after a day of fishing and barbecues every night on the new Trex deck. The landscaping and gardens were especially nice. Everything was irrigated, including the potted plants so even they are thriving. The only minus was when the wind blew, the very large cherry tomato plant fell over twice, pulling over the flower pots next to it because they were connected thru the irrigation tubes between them, so not really a minus but a privileged problem. The cherry tomatoes that fell off were delicious, thanks. Also, we found the Clinton Market on the way to the cabin was a good place to store up...

This cabin was perfect for exploring the fishing on Rock Creek. We hit the lower part behind the Fisherman Mercantile with a guide, one day, then drove 30mins to meet the guide to float the Blackfoot, then spent the 3rd day exploring the upper Rock Creek. All were easy to get to, and the fishing was great. I've heard folks warn of Rock Creek Rd. I was not overwhelmed by it's narrowness, but I drive on a river road just like it in my town. Just go slow and prepare to take it easy or maybe even have to back up if you meet another vehicle. We did drive it to the end, and there are 2 cliff side parts that you hit a hairpin turn on, but if you stay focused behind the wheel you won't drive off the side and plummet to your death. The Hay farms and Ranch land we drove thru after Rock Creek Rd to get to Phillipsburgh were stunning. A lonnng drive, but beautiful.

The Sawmill cabin at Montana Rock Creek Cabins is a true gem of a spot! I would return here in a heartbeat, Thank you! More

5 star ratingVery Nice Place This is a very large house that can sleep up to 10 people. Even though large it still had charm as the decorations are very well done. Has a large living space and a great kitchen. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is there. They do an excellent job cleaning the house. A real plus besides the size of the place is the time we spent just sitting on the front porch as the view is outstanding. By the way the WiFi worked great. Great communication with agent. Rock Creek is a world famous trout river if that is your thing. We can highly recommend this place to get away. More

Great Location For Trout Fishing

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

Comforatable Cabins

Comfortably furnished, our cabins Golden Stone and Sawmill, feature fully equipped kitchens, outdoor living areas, comfortable living rooms with gas fireplaces, wireless internet, and satellite television. Tastefully furnished and well equipped, the Montana Rock Creek Cabins “Golden Stone” and “Sawmill” are warm and inviting vacation rentals.

Open Year Round

We are open in the winter for winter fishing on the creek, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Our Golden Stone 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.
