Angler Appreciation Day at Rock Creek

In preparation for the event, the entire length of Rock Creek will be heavily stocked (not just the section at the Hatchery). The stocked fish will include fish that have been tagged. If you catch a tagged fish, remove the tag and return the tag to the Hatchery the following week to collect a prize.


Bring fishing gear and bait
