Black Hills Fishing Report 7/5/2019

We had some significant rainfall yesterday around the Black Hills area, and a few streams came up quite a bit. That being said, most of our streams are coming back down – a lot of them are fishable today, and most of them will be by this weekend. Rapid Creek above Pactola and Box Elder got the worst of it, but nearly everywhere else is fishable. Don’t let the wet summer we’ve had so far keep you from fishing – it’s been excellent anywhere the water has decent visibility!

The water has come down quite a bit on most of our streams over the past week, and most places – with the exception of Rapid Creek – are back down to near normal levels. The fishing has been excellent nearly everywhere, and even Rapid Creek has some great fishing from Pactola through Rapid City. Warmwater fishing opportunities for bass are getting started as well – it’s going to be a great week to be on the water in the Black Hills!

Black Hills Fishing Report

We’ve had a lot drier weather overall for the past few days, and it’s helped a lot of the local streams come down to fishable levels. Most places are back to normal, with the exception of most of Rapid Creek. A few places are still a bit off color, but that can actually be an advantage much of the time. The weather this week looks perfect to get out on the water in the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola near Silver City is still high, and very dirty. It will be awhile before this comes...

We’ve been in quite the cool, damp weather pattern over the past few days, and the next few days look to be more of the same. Most of the creeks in the central Black Hills are high but fishable, with the northern hills streams being more normal flows. Despite the strange weather, the fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high, and will most likely come up quite a bit with the moisture over the next couple days. Let this come down below 200 cfs before making the drive up.

We’ve been in a bit of a cool, damp weather pattern recently, which has helped the stream flows out considerably. Nearly every stream in the Black Hills has great flows right now, and the fish are happy and less spooky than they typically would be. The weather looks like it’s going to turn around and be a bit more seasonal after the next couple days, and the fishing should continue to be great!

Rapid Creek above Pactola came up a bit with the rain the last couple days, but should fish well once it starts to drop back down after today....
