Black Hills Fishing Report – Black Hills Fly Fishing April 9th 2019

Rapid Creek

Rapid Creek has been fishing quite well from Pactola Reservoir down through Rapid City. Above Pactola is seeing dirty water from snow melt. With more snow on the way in a few days, it could be dirty for some time above the reservoir. Spring Blue Winged Olive hatches as well as decent midge hatches are creating good to excellent dry fly...

It looks like we’re finally out of the woods with the sub-zero temperatures for this winter thankfully. We’re forecast to get a fair amount of snow this afternoon/evening, and then the weather looks to be pretty conducive to getting out and doing some fishing! We apologize for the lack of reports over the past month – we haven’t been out much due to ice and temperatures in the single digits at best. We’ve been out a bit late last week and over the weekend however, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the fishing.

Rapid Creek below Pactola has...

The weather and fishing have both been solid over the past week, and it looks like there’s going to be some great opportunities to get out this week as well! We’re slowly climbing out of the short days of the winter solstice, and the fishing has been steadily improving since then. There’s some solid fishing to be had this time of year, and we’re starting to see some dry fly opportunities as well.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is still at 35 cfs, which is a great flow for this time of year. There’s some fish on the surface on midges...

Cold and snowy in the Black Hills today, but warmer weather is on the way! The fishing has been good to great depending on the day, and has become pretty standard mid-winter type fishing for the most part. Lower elevation stuff and Rapid Creek below Pactola are going to be your best bet, with a bit of fishing in Spearfish Canyon as well.

Rapid Creek above Silver City is going to be really icy and cold. It’ll be a better option come Spring.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is fishing decent most days, and can be great on the right day. It’s...

We’ve had a cool and snowy few days lately, but the fishing has still been solid. The nights are looking to be pretty cold over the next couple days, but highs will creep into the 40s later this week. The best fishing has been in the lower elevations around the foothills, but there’s some opportunities up higher as well.

Rapid Creek above Silver City has some opportunities, but it’s going to start to be pretty cold and pretty icy. If you’re headed up there, find some open water that’s fairly slow and deep and put a couple nymphs on. Tungsten Rainbow...
