Clear Creek

Image of Clear Creek

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.

Latest fishing report

Bonneville cutthroat trout are abundant throughout Clear Creek and its tributaries. The stream is clear and mostly ice-free in Fremont Indian State Park. Ice is making fishing more difficult upstream of the narrows. An angler recently reported good fishing using small woolly buggers and copper johns in the deeper runs and pools in the state park reach. (Last update 02-13-19)
