Fishing has been nothing short of great throughout the hills, and will continue to be excellent into the fall! We have some of the best late summer/fall water conditions that we’ve had in a number of years, and the fish dig it. Terrestrials, dries, streamers, nymphs – you name it, you can do well on it. The fishing is solid right now, and this fall is going to be equally great.

Rapid Creek above Pactola came up to 170 cfs yesterday, but should drop quickly today and tomorrow. The water is dirty still, but the fishing is good on nymphs and...

The flows are continuing to drop, and the fishing has been good to great just about everywhere. Most all of Rapid Creek is finally fishable, and is fishing well! Smaller streams in the Black Hills are starting to see some good terrestrial fishing, and that should spread to Rapid Creek with the continued drop in flows.

You can fish most places with a hopper/dropper rig right now and expect to get a few on the hopper. Good dry flies include Fat Franks, Morrish Hoppers, User Friendlies, Parachute Ants, Bionic Ants, and various other mid size terrestrials. Stuff in the size...

Late summer is one of our favorite times of the year!

Rapid Creek at Silver City is hovering around 200 cfs, which is a little bit on the high side still. You...

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...
