Black Hills Fishing Report October 17, 2013

The reservoir is being drawn back down to accommodate lower flows for repair work on Canyon Lake. The drawdown of Pactola Reservoir should take several more days. Spearfish Creek has come down considerably since the storm and is fishable...

The key to catching fish in town right now is to focus on all of the edges, and the super skinny water, the fish are stacked in all of the water that most anglers walk past. Trico hatch in the morning is still really good, and runs anywhere from 5:30 to 9:00 am, depending on temperatures. Caddis in the evening are also still really going, with most of our...

Fishing continues to be decent in town as well, it’s best in the morning for the trico hatch then...
