Coming off the flood could have had something to do with it... The creek was really blown out, so alot of the fish were pushed out of a lot of areas... They were pushed to areas with good cover and slack water... They'll be back...

Go west, young man. Try Pilcher Park below the dam.

Flyfished the creek on May 8th with my usual fly patterns. Got out about 8:30 AM and caught a few decent rockies and gills and a couple of small smallies (very small) also creek chubs but overall it was pretty slow and the water was low and clear. Overall it was very fishable (Maybe I should have gotten up earlier)

Maybe you should have tried the KKK instead!

I fished the Rock Creek off Deselm Road on the previous Wednesday 5/1 and caught about 12 smallies ...no size though but it was steady and fun. The water level was still high and the current was moving pretty well
