The upper elevations of the Black Hills got quite a bit of snow over the last couple days, but the fishing has still been excellent. The snow may create a bit of higher water over the next couple days, but the fishing should stay unaffected really. Get out and enjoy the fall before winter hits!

Rapid Creek above Pactola near Silver City is fishing well, primarily with nymphs. Bigger flies will work with the slightly stained water – Pat’s Rubber Legs, Jig Squirmy Worms, tungsten worms, and big jig flies in the 12-14 range will work well. Most of the fish...

Don’t let the wintry weather scare you off – the fishing is still excellent, and we didn’t get enough snow to really raise the flows much. A few places will most likely come up a bit over the weekend, but we don’t foresee anything becoming unfishable by any means. Fall is a fantastic time to be out fishing in the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is 107 cfs, which is about what it’s been for the past several weeks. Nymph fishing and streamer fishing are going to be your best bets. Larger nymphs will work well, as the water is...

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 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....

We’ve got plenty of water around right now, and the fishing has been solid! We have great flows in all of our streams, and lake fishing has been great also. A few of our local streams are a little on the high side, but should come into great shape in the next week. Pike fishing is heating up as well!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high and dirty. Give it another week or two and it will clear up a bit.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is high – 160 cfs. It’s mostly going to be a nymphing game with the...
