Fishing has been solid over the past couple weeks, and the weather has been excellent this week which has enabled a lot of folks to get out on the water! Rapid Creek in town has been fishing fantastic, as well as below Pactola. Spearfish Creek has been another good option as well, particularly right in town. Get out and enjoy the nice weather this weekend!

As far as January weather and fishing goes, the next week looks to be fantastic! We have had some great fishing over the past few weeks, and the weather looks like it’s going to stay in the 40s over the next week – great weather to get out and fish.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is at 40 cfs, which is a great wintertime flow. Nymph fishing is going to be your best bet for numbers of fish, but you might run into a few fish eating midges on the surface as well. Small flies will be the name of the game...

The upper elevations of the Black Hills got quite a bit of snow over the last couple days, but the fishing has still been excellent. The snow may create a bit of higher water over the next couple days, but the fishing should stay unaffected really. Get out and enjoy the fall before winter hits!

Rapid Creek above Pactola near Silver City is fishing well, primarily with nymphs. Bigger flies will work with the slightly stained water – Pat’s Rubber Legs, Jig Squirmy Worms, tungsten worms, and big jig flies in the 12-14 range will work well. Most of the fish...

Don’t let the wintry weather scare you off – the fishing is still excellent, and we didn’t get enough snow to really raise the flows much. A few places will most likely come up a bit over the weekend, but we don’t foresee anything becoming unfishable by any means. Fall is a fantastic time to be out fishing in the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is 107 cfs, which is about what it’s been for the past several weeks. Nymph fishing and streamer fishing are going to be your best bets. Larger nymphs will work well, as the water is...

We’ve got some wintry weather coming over the next 24 hours, but the fishing has been solid and the weather this coming weekend looks excellent. Flows have come up a bit on a few local streams, which will get some fish moving around a bit as well. The fishing this fall has been the best we’ve seen in awhile, and should continue to be fantastic!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is fishing well, and is flowing right around 100 cfs – which is a perfect flow. From Silver City up the trailhead quite a distance has been fishing well, and there’s some...
