The flows are continuing to drop, and the fishing has been good to great just about everywhere. Most all of Rapid Creek is finally fishable, and is fishing well! Smaller streams in the Black Hills are starting to see some good terrestrial fishing, and that should spread to Rapid Creek with the continued drop in flows.

You can fish most places with a hopper/dropper rig right now and expect to get a few on the hopper. Good dry flies include Fat Franks, Morrish Hoppers, User Friendlies, Parachute Ants, Bionic Ants, and various other mid size terrestrials. Stuff in the size...

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...

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.
