  • 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.
