Despite colder temps this week the fishing has still been fantastic, particularly at lower elevations. Rapid Creek in town and below Pactola has been fishing great, and Spearfish Creek has had solid fishing as well.

Rapid Creek below Pactola has been fishing well, and is at a solid winter flow of 40 cfs. Nymph fishing has been the name of the game, but you might run into a few...
