With the spring storm we just got slammed with the past couple days, a few of our local streams maybe a bit on the high side for a bit. There’s still an ample amount of good stream fishing to be had, but we have a ton of lakes with great fishing that get overlooked by most fly anglers. A lot of the folks in the shop are deterred by the higher flows, which means it’s a fantastic time to try lake fishing, especially if you’re not used to wading/fishing our streams at bigger flows than average. There’s tons of great lakes...

Black Hills Fishing Report – 5/20/2019

We’ve been in quite the cool, damp weather pattern over the past few days, and the next few days look to be more of the same. Most of the creeks in the central Black Hills are high but fishable, with the northern hills streams being more normal flows. Despite the strange weather, the fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high, and will most likely come up quite a bit with the moisture over the next couple days. Let this come down below 200 cfs before making the drive up.

We’ve been in a bit of a cool, damp weather pattern recently, which has helped the stream flows out considerably. Nearly every stream in the Black Hills has great flows right now, and the fish are happy and less spooky than they typically would be. The weather looks like it’s going to turn around and be a bit more seasonal after the next couple days, and the fishing should continue to be great!

Rapid Creek above Pactola came up a bit with the rain the last couple days, but should fish well once it starts to drop back down after today....

We’ve got plenty of water around right now, and the fishing has been solid! We have great flows in all of our streams, and lake fishing has been great also.
