July is a very popular month for fly fishing Rock Creek. And why not? Daylight lasts until 10 pm, lots of bugs hatch on the river in July, and the weather is superb.
By July, generally, the river has shrunk from its swollen, spring self, back into a normal summer flow. Fishing from boats on the river ends June 30, so now Rock Creek is a wader fisherman’s paradise.
While the water temperatures are still cool, I love wade fishing Rock Creek in July and August. The hot summer sun makes up for any discomfort from the cool waters.
Daytime temperature range between 80-90 degrees, humidity is nearly non-existent, and sun is in the forecast just about every day.
