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!

Rapid Creek below Pactola has been fishing well, and there’s been a good number of  fish in the 12-16″ range. There’s plenty of larger fish around also, but the average sized fish are plentiful and...

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...

Now that some of the snow has melted and getting to the streams is easier, the fishing has been solid! Rapid Creek, Spearfish Creek, and Spring Creek have been the three best options over the past couple weeks. The weather tomorrow looks to be fantastic, and will be a great December day to get out on the water.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is fishing well, primarily with nymphs. There’s still a few browns spawning, so be mindful of fish that are in water that seems abnormally shallow and fish that are obviously on redds – a circular, lighter colored piece of...

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...

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...
