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

The restoration of Bonneville cutthroat trout is complete in the drainage, and anglers are now reaping the benefits. You can find catchable-sized fish throughout the entire stream. Some of the tributaries — including Mill, Fish and Shingle creeks — will also provide good fishing opportunities. Anglers report good to excellent fishing. (Last updated 11-23-2016)
