We’ve had a bit of a change in the weather over the past few days – we went from 100 degrees on Saturday, to 30 today and pretty heavy snowfall up in the Black Hills. The fishing has been solid over the past week, and the cooler temperatures should make for even better fishing over the next week!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is fishing well, from the lake all the way past Rochford. Hopper Dropper rigs have been working really well, but with the cooler nighttime temperatures you’re going to start catching less fish on the dry and more fish...

Fishing has been good to great depending on the day throughout the Black Hills, particularly in the mornings and late evenings when the weather and water temps are cooler.

Black Hills Fly Fishing Report April 8th 2020

Flows have increased around the Black Hills over the past week as snow melt from higher upstream has made it into our streams. Fishing continues to be good to excellent. Baetis mayflies, little black stoneflies, and midges are hatching. Flows in some areas have kept fish from feeding much on the surface. We have had excellent luck nymphing. Streamer bite should be good as well. Opportunities for dry fly fishing exist, but they have been inconsistent.

Rapid Creek is clearest below Pactola Reservoir. Flows are up to 130 cfs...
