Clear Creek

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: The section of the creek that runs through Fremont Indian State Park is muddy because of runoff. The work to remove nonnative trout from the Clear Creek drainage is progressing. There are no fish in much of the drainage, except in between Fish and Shingle creeks and inside the state park. Bonneville cutthroat trout were stocked in these two sections in fall 2012.

  • 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.
