Black Hills Fishing Report July 22nd 2021

Fishing remains good on Rapid Creek, Spearfish Creek, and Castle Creek. We have been fortunate to get some showers from thunderstorms the past few days. That has helped flows on Black Hills streams. Definitely have to keep an eye on water temperatures at lower elevations.

Rapid Creek has fished well above and below Pactola Reservoir. Above Pactola anglers will find success hiking up from Silver City. Dry Dropper rigs are the ticket for most of this stretch. Just below Pactola in the catch and release area, anglers can target fish with larger terrestrial...

Tungsten worms, Mop Flies, Pat’s Rubber Legs, and various jig patterns in size 12-14 will work well. As the water clears up, you’ll have to start fishing with smaller dropper patterns like Perdigons, Zebra Midges, and Skinny Jigs.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is 40 cfs, which...

Fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills, particularly on Rapid and Spearfish Creeks. Nymph fishing has been fantastic, and there’s been some good dry fly fishing some days as well. With the warmer temps and longer days, it’s time to get out and do some spring fishing!

Rapid Creek above Pactola should be opening up and fishing well. The flows have come up a bit and the water is a little off color, but you can do well fishing nymphs and smaller streamers. Mop Flies, San Juan Worms, and larger jig flies in size 10-14 will work well.
