Ten Mile Creek flows from Freemont Pass down to Copper Resort, where it meets with West Ten Mile Creek, and continues to to flow east through Ten Mile Caynon to Dillon Reservoir. North Tenmile Creek is another fishable tributary the drains into 10 Mile Caynon near Frisco from the Gore Range. This water holds a nice population of brookies, browns, rainbows, and cutthroat trout. Small dryflies, nymphs, and streamers can all hook fish here, the summer months can provide excellent dry-dropper fishing.

guide tip of the week:
the flows are currently a bit fast in the steeper sections of this creek, so search for the flatter/wider sections, which will be a refuge for fish. A nymph rig, or a dry dropper can be effective tecniques currently.
