Fly Fishing Small Streams in the Black Hills

More small stream exploration today. We fished a couple of spots that I haven’t fished much since my high school days. I have many good memories of fishing upper Spring Creek and Slate Creek with my first fly fishing partners Mike and Chris. Today I shared this adventure with another of my favorite fishing partners- Elsa. She didn’t fish today but she almost netted a big brookie for me. Alas it fell off before we got it in the net. It was a beauty.

On today’s outing I used the Scott F2 Fiberglass 7′ 3 weight. This paired with a Rio Perception WF3f line is a great tool for small stream fishing. Hopper patterns were the ticket today. They crushed them!

Upper Spring Creek Rainbow Brook trout from upper Spring Creek Spring Creek above Sheridan Lake En route to Slate Creek above Slate Creek Dam Slate Creek above Slate Creek Dam Chub- when they get this big they put a decent bend in the fiberglass rod I was using. Success! Nice Slate Creek Brook Trout It's worthing fishing around the creek chubs to catch these beautiful brookies! Another Slate Creek Brookie Fiberglass is great for small streams.

It makes the drive into the creek that much better!
