The Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup is a popular fall event in the Black Hills. If you’re coming out to see the roundup, don’t forget to pack your fishing gear. The 2015 Buffalo Roundup is going to take place Friday, September 25, 2015.
This September is going to be an excellent month of fishing. The Black Hills had ample rain in the late spring and early summer. The above average rainfall paved the way for fantastic late season stream flows. While fishing is generally quite good in September, this year fishing is extra special due to the increased flows in most streams.
Fishing should continue to improve as we get later into the month. Dry fly fishing gets better and better as the daytime temperatures continue to cool. Look for the fishing to be excellent the weekend of the Buffalo Roundup. Lighter weight rods are great for later season fishing. 2-4 weight rods are fun when fishing dries or dry dropper rigs. Hatches of Blue Winged Olives, Caddis, and terrestrials often bring fish to the surface. You can also hunt for bigger fish by fishing deeper with nymphs. Streamer fishing is a great option this year, especially with the better than average flows.
