Fishing has been solid all around the Black Hills, and as winter slowly recedes we’ve been finding some more active fish and more places to go. The dry fly fishing has been god to great depending on the day, and fish have been more than willing to eat nymphs just about everywhere. The weather this week looks to be a nice change from what we’ve been having, and it looks like it’s going to be a great week to be out on the water in the Black Hills!

We’re beginning to sound like a broken record, but the fishing is still fantastic here in the Black Hills. All things considered, this year has turned out much, much better than we anticipated it would. We started off the summer very dry, and we were getting a bit worried. Things have turned around a bit in the moisture department, and the fish have been happy. Terrestrial fishing has been really good lately, and we’re heading into streamer season. The next month is going to be a great time to be here!
