Snow has been the theme so far this winter and spring, but the fishing continues to be solid. Fishing throughout the Black Hills has been good to excellent most days, and there’s been some fantastic dry fly fishing when the wind isn’t blowing. As has been the case over the last month, the lower elevation streams have been fishing better than the higher elevation stuff, but if the weather continues a warming trend the upper stretches will start fishing as well.

Rapid Creek above Pactola is open for the most part, but will be pretty dirty especially if the weather is...

Black Hills Fishing Report – 3/26/2017

The fishing throughout the Black Hills area continues to be solid, and the weather looks like it’s going to stay solid for the coming week as well. We might see a bit of runoff over the next day or two, but the creeks will still be more than fishable and the higher water will probably move some fish around as well. The lower elevation creeks will still be your best bets, but over the next few weeks the upper stretches of many streams will open up and be an option as well. Fishing is solid right now!

Fishing throughout the Black Hills is still great! We had some rugged weather a couple days ago that dumped a little moisture over the Hills, and it’s helped the flows out on many of the local streams. Fishing has been solid just about everywhere, and there’s starting to be more dry fly fishing opportunities, especially terrestrial patterns.

Rapid Creek above Pactola is fishing good, especially if you’re not concerned with the size of the fish. Dry-dropper type rigs with a Hippie Stomper or Klinkhamer for a dry fly/indicator have been good. Trail a Tung Teaser, Psycho, Tungsten Zebra, or various jig...

The weather has been on the windy side over the last few days, but the holiday weekend weather looks to be excellent! There’s a few chances for rain this weekend as well, which will be helpful in keeping our streams flowing full all summer. The fishing has been great, and the weather is going to make it a fantastic weekend to get out on the water!

Rapid Creek above Pactola has been fishing rather well, even though it’s a bit off color from the rains last week. Because of the clarity, nymphing has been the name of the game. Jig Soft...

We’ve had some rainy/snowy weather over the past few days, which is more than welcome! The forecast through the coming week looks to be seasonably warm, with a few chances for some rain as well. The fishing has been great throughout the Hills, and should continue to be fantastic for the coming week!

Rapid Creek above Pactola came up a little bit from the moisture over the past few days, but is still at a fishable level. It will be a little off color, so streamers and larger nymphs will be the best bet. North Fork Specials, Tung Teasers, Tungsten Rainbow...
