Rock Creek has been on the drop as of late. Looking at the stream forecast the creek should be on the drop for a while. Golden stones and salmonflys are out. Fishing a golden stone or salmonfly with a yellow sally nymph has been very effective. 

Here are a few tips for fly fishing Rock Creek:

1. Dry Droppers have been very effective as of late
2. Fish the slow inside bends and deeper pools
3. Fishing soft banks with larger stoneflies could be productive as well

Here are a few fly suggestions:

1. Golden Stone, 10-12

2. Salmonfly, 8-10

3. Purple chubby 10-14 

4. Kreelex Minnow size 6, in copper/gold

5. TJ Hooker size 10-12, in coffee/black

6. Pheasant Tail Nymph size 12-20

7. Yellow Sally Nymph, 14

Flows and looking ahead:

Even with the warm weather Rock Creek has continued to drop. The flows have leveled out around 922 CFS.
