Live Water: Duck Creek Lake is a tremendous fishery with abundant live water to enjoy on its 30 acres. There is a professionally installed fish ladder on the dam that allows trout to migrate upstream into Duck Creek from Hebgen Lake. Rainbow, brown, cutthroat and brook trout can all be caught in Duck Creek Lake, including trophy-sized fish up to 30 inches or more.Duck Creek is a meadow stream that flows from Yellowstone National Park into Duck Creek Lake on the northeastern side of the property. Duck Creek is a willow-lined, grassy banked stream with mostly slow moving water with long pools and gentle riffles. Presentation of the fly is important in this smooth water as the trout are not pushovers. Pale Morning Duns (PMD) as well as gray and green drakes can bring trout to the surface in the month of June and early July. Terrestrials such as ants, beetles, and grasshoppers are a must in late summer. Look for mayfly activity on overcast days and terrestrial action on bright, sunny and windy days.
