Black Hills Fishing Report – 3/22/2021

Ryan Gabert Black Hills Fishing black hills fishing report Black Hills Fishing Reports Fishing Report Uncategorized

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 has been good, particularly in the higher elevations. Nymph fishing has been good near Silver City with various jigs and midges.

While the weather has been leaning towards the hot side the last couple weeks, the fishing continues to be solid on most all Black Hills streams. We’re getting into some better dry fly fishing on a few areas, but the nymph rig has been putting up the most numbers still.

Rapid Creek above Pactola is down to a fishable level around 90 cfs, and there have been decent numbers of lake run rainbows around as well as lots of smaller wild browns. Nymph fishing with larger flies like worms, mop flies, jig Hare’s Ears, North Fork Specials, and Pheasant...
