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!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is blown out. It’s going to be a couple weeks at the least before...

In the meantime, there’s still plenty of options for fishing in the area.

Here’s the bad part – Rapid Creek, Spring Creek, Castle Creek below Deerfield, Box Elder, and pretty much all the other streams in the central hills are high and unfishable for the time being. Rapid Creek...

Cold and snowy in the Black Hills today, but warmer weather is on the way! The fishing has been good to great depending on the day, and has become pretty standard mid-winter type fishing for the most part.

Rapid Creek above Silver City is going to be really icy and cold. It’ll be a better option come Spring.

Rapid Creek below Pactola is fishing decent most days, and can be great on the right day. It’s...

Shop Rainy’s Slider Head Pike Fly Materials

Rainy’s Slider Heads make a great topwater pattern, as well as fishing on a heavy sinking line. We’ve had great luck fishing this pattern on a heavy sinking line like the SA Sonar Titan series. Let the line sink almost all the way to the bottom and start retrieving – the buoyant foam head will keep your fly out of the weeds, but near the bottom where the fish are. This is a great topwater pattern fished...

The Leviathan Pike Fly is a good choice for when the fish are holding in slightly deeper water and you need just a bit of extra weight to get down to them. This super simple fly is a breeze to tie, and has all the right flash and wiggle that pike really dig. Give this fly a try in the late spring and fall when the fish are holding on deeper structure – you’ll be happy you did!
