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!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is open and running around 70 cfs, which...

The weather over the next few days looks to be in the high twenties to low thirties, which is a heck of a lot better than it has been for the past month!

Normally we’ve had a fair amount of snow by this point in the fall, but so far it’s been darn warm and dry. While we are always happy for any kind of moisture, the warmer conditions have made for some incredible fishing!

Hans has been out a couple times in the last few days, and has found the fish to be acting a little strange. Typically by November the trout on Rapid Creek through town are focused on midges and BWO’s, with the odd worm or something subsurface. This year, the trout through town have a hankerin’ for Hippie Stompers, and...

Indian Summer conditions continue to persist throughout the Black Hills, and its been making the fish happy. We continue to have highs in the sixties and it looks to continue throughout the rest of the week. which will make for some fantastic fishing conditions. We’ve had some great dry fly fishing  recently, as well as some bigger fish chasing streamers!
