Fishing throughout the Black Hills continues to be great, and we have had some unseasonably warm weather that’s made for some really good fishing. With highs that continue to be in the 60s and 70s we’ve had a fair amount of dry fly fishing available, as well as some terrestrial opportunities! This is the time of year that streamer fishing starts to get good as well, and some of our biggest fish of the year are caught in late October and November. There’s no shortage of fishing opportunities throughout the Black Hills right now, and the streams are all pretty vacant!...
We’re cooling down over the next couple days in the Black Hills, and it’s starting to look more like fall with a chance of snow. The sub-freezing temperatures forecast for the next couple mornings will make for a cold start to your day, but won’t affect the fishing much. Throughout the Black Hills the fish have been pretty willing, and we’ve had some great days over the past week with some happy folks out on the water. Most of the people that frequent Black Hills streams have switched from waders to hunting boots, so the streams have been pretty darn quiet!...

Learn to tie a flashy jig style nymph that triggers strikes like nobody’s business. Consider the trout party crashed. Ok that sounds a bit corny, but this is an excellent nymph that is catching a bunch of fish lately. Great for Czech or European nymphing styles.
