Flows are down, and fishing is great. Nearly everywhere in the Black Hills is fishable right now, and the flows should be continuing to drop on the few places that are still on the high side. There’s great trout fishing opportunities throughout the Black Hills right now, as well as some solid warmwater fishing to be had both in the hills and on the prairie east of Rapid City. Late summer is one of our favorite times of the year!

Rapid Creek at Silver City is hovering around 200 cfs, which is a little bit on the high side still. You...

Black Hills Fly Fishing Report August 9th 2019

Rapid Creek flows have dropped considerably in the past week. While still high for this time of year most of the creek is now fishable! We were out in town yesterday and did very well. For the most part nymph and streamer fishing are going to be the best options. However, when out on the creek yesterday there were caddis, little yellow stones, and PMDs hatching....

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...

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...
