We’re having some more seasonable weather this week, and it’s made the fish a little more willing on many of our local streams. The temperatures over the next few days are going to hang in the low 70s for highs, and then we dip down into the 50s for highs this weekend. The cooler, rainy weather this weekend and into next week will help the fishing out, and will probably make for some good BWO dry fly fishing on a few of our local streams as well.

Rapid Creek above Pactola has been fishing well, namely with dry dropper style rigs....

The fishing throughout the Black Hills continues to stay solid, especially in the central to northern parts of the hills. We have a couple more days of warm weather ahead of us, and then it looks to turn to more seasonable temperatures in the 60s and 70s. The fishing has been good to great depending on the day, and should get better and better with the longer nights and cooler days!

Rapid Creek above Pactola has been fishing well in the Silver City area. We’ve had some folks in that have been doing really well from the lake upstream to Silver...

Scott G Series Review- Did a classic just get better?

Purchase Scott G Series Fly Rods

Scott G Series rods have long been a favorite of mine. As soon as I learned of the release of the New G Series, I ordered a 884 for myself. I wanted to see for myself if my favorite rods had really been improved upon.

The 884/3 and the 773/4 were some of the first quality fly rods that I purchased in the 1990s. The 884 ( 8’8” 4 Weight) immediately became my go-to trout rod for the majority...

We’re going to warm up for a few days, but the fishing continues to be solid and will only get better with the shorter days and cooler temps forecasted for next week.
