Clear Creek

Fishing report

  • Conditions: Removal of non-native trout in the Clear Creek drainage is now complete, and stocking of Bonneville cutthroat trout is in full swing. Your best chance to find catchable-sized fish for the rest of 2014 will be above the Narrows. Fingerling cutthroat stocked this fall in the rest of Clear Creek will be six to eight inches long by next summer.

  • Site description: Clear Creek is paralleled by I-70 west of Cove Fort. Access is easy via the old highway and frontage road. Part of the stream flows through Fremont Indian State Park.

    This is a small stream loaded with wild rainbow and brown trout. Sections of the stream were relocated during the construction of I-70 and fish habitat structures added at that time, creating some easily identified "fishing holes." Try a worm drifted through the holes, or a small spinner. If flyfishing, an elk hair caddis or Wulff pattern usually works.
