Black Hills Fishing Report – 5/11/2021

Spring fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills, and with the weather forecast calling for some precipitation most days we should continue to have excellent fishing! Pretty much all of the streams and lakes in the hills are fishing great right now.

Rapid Creek above Pactola has come down to 85 cfs, and is a little off color. Fishing with larger nymph patterns will be your best bet. Mop flies, Pat’s Rubber Legs, worms, and various jig flies in size 12-14 will work well. The fish aren’t super selective, so if you find water that’s medium depth and...

Fishing has been fantastic throughout the lower elevations of the Black Hills, and the higher elevation streams have thawed out and are starting to fish great as well!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is a bit high and dirty, but you should be able to find some nicer fish with bigger nymph patterns. 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.
