Fishing has been great throughout the area, and with the lower flows we’re starting to get into ‘normal’ summer fishing.

With the drier weather over the past week, a lot of streams have come down and are in perfect shape. Rapid Creek has been coming down nicely as well, and if the current weather pattern continues it should be fishable in the next couple weeks.

Rapid Creek at Silver City is at 318, which is heading in the right direction. 200cfs or less is ideal, and closer to 125 is money. It should hopefully be down within the next couple weeks to a good level, as long as we don’t get a lot more moisture. Upper Rapid Creek near Black...

Black Hills Fishing Report – 7/23/2019

We’ve finally been getting some stable weather, and with stable and dropping streamflows the fishing has been excellent just about everywhere. Fishing has been pretty consistent throughout the Black Hills, and with some stable weather over the coming week everywhere should continue to fish great!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is still really high, but could be fishable within the next week if the weather stays dry and Rapid Creek continues to drop. Big worms, jigs, and buggers fished under an indicator should get the job done once it drops into the 200-250cfs range.

Below Pactola is nearly 525 cfs, which is...

The water has come up a lot over the past week, but most of the creeks are back down to fishable levels. The fishing has been excellent most everywhere you can find clear water. If the visibility is in the 2′ range or more, you’re in good shape. Bigger flies and fish that aren’t spooky make high water nice!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high and dirty. It will be several weeks at best before it’s fishable.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is high at 495, and is probably going to stay at that flow for a couple weeks at least. The...

Black Hills Fishing Report 7/5/2019

We had some significant rainfall yesterday around the Black Hills area, and a few streams came up quite a bit. That being said, most of our streams are coming back down – a lot of them are fishable today, and most of them will be by this weekend. Rapid Creek above Pactola and Box Elder got the worst of it, but nearly everywhere else is fishable. Don’t let the wet summer we’ve had so far keep you from fishing – it’s been excellent anywhere the water has decent visibility!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is blown. It...
