I paddled and fished on the Rockfish Creek for 2 days. Fishing was great on Saturday and not so hot on Sunday, but the scenery and solitude was wonderful. The dark, but clear water, the multiple sand bars as well as several water falls made this a very enjoyable trip even if I hadn't caught any fish. I would highly recommend this creek to anyone who loves to paddle and enjoys the beauty of God's creation. Chris E.
