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.

Lisa’s place was great! I loved that they were able to get so many beds in the house, it makes it easier when everyone has separate rooms. Also very clean and nicely decorated. The views surrounding the cabin are gorgeous!

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!

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.
