We’ve got some wintry weather coming over the next 24 hours, but the fishing has been solid and the weather this coming weekend looks excellent. Flows have come up a bit on a few local streams, which will get some fish moving around a bit as well. The fishing this fall has been the best we’ve seen in awhile, and should continue to be fantastic!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is fishing well, and is flowing right around 100 cfs – which is a perfect flow. From Silver City up the trailhead quite a distance has been fishing well, and there’s some...

We’ve had one of the wettest years on record and Rapid City – what does that mean for the fishing? As anyone that’s fished around the area earlier this summer knows, we had some incredibly high and dirty water. We’re not in an area that has a ton of snowpack or normally gets a sustained runoff, so it was a bit different for us this year. Many of our streams were flowing at 15-20 times their average flow for quite some time. Successful fishing this spring required thinking out of the box in regards to areas to fish and flies to...

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...

Black Hills Fishing Report – 7/23/2019

We’ve finally been getting some stable weather, and with stable and dropping streamflows the fishing has been excellent just about everywhere. Fishing has been pretty consistent throughout the Black Hills, and with some stable weather over the coming week everywhere should continue to fish great!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is still really high, but could be fishable within the next week if the weather stays dry and Rapid Creek continues to drop. Big worms, jigs, and buggers fished under an indicator should get the job done once it drops into the 200-250cfs range.

Below Pactola is nearly 525 cfs, which is...

Black Hills Fishing Report July 10th 2019

The water has come up a lot over the past week, but most of the creeks are back down to fishable levels. The fishing has been excellent most everywhere you can find clear water. If the visibility is in the 2′ range or more, you’re in good shape. Bigger flies and fish that aren’t spooky make high water nice!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high and dirty. It will be several weeks at best before it’s fishable.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is high at 495, and is probably going to stay at that flow for a couple weeks at least. The...
