Wolf creek is one of the many small, overlooked creeks in this area and provides challenging and rewarding fishing for browns, rainbows and brook trout in the 5-10” range.  These small fish put up a challenge as the river is a high-gradient, heavily wooded area making casts difficult but super fun when you are able to get a drift.  Trout are pretty eager with a decent cast.  Walk carefully along the streamside or through the river for your best chances at not spooking fish and getting a cast.  Small rods under 8ft do the best in these tight quarters.

Up above near the headwaters along hwy 160 the gradient isn’t as steep and there are some easier sections to fish, though they do get fished more due to the ease and many of the numbers will be found in the areas with tight quartered fly fishing.

Any high floating dry fly will do fine and if you want to get tricky, a small nymph underneath the dry will pull out a lot of fish as well.  This is a great place to enjoy some solitude on a challenging river that can yield a lot of small, and beautiful trout.
