This drainage was logged in the 1950s. The creek provides fair fishing for pan-sized cutthroat and rainbow trout. Fishing is available from Wigwam Creek upstream for 1.7 miles, but above that point Rich Creek is too small to support catchable fish.

Directions: Follow US Highway 93 for 3 miles north of Fortine to Grave Creek Road 114, then turn and travel 24 miles to Rich Creek. Access is provided by parking on the main road where it crosses Rich Creek and walking either up or downstream. There are several dispersed recreation campsites in the Wigwam drainage and 4 miles up the road are two National Forest campgrounds, Big Therriault Lake and Little Therriault Lake.
