Black Hills Fishing Report – 4/22/2021

Ryan Gabert Black Hills Fishing black hills fishing report Black Hills Fishing Reports spearfish creek Uncategorized

Black Hills fly fishing has been solid over the past couple weeks, and the snow that the upper elevations got has bumped the flows a bit. The weather this weekend looks to be great as well, and will make for some great fishing!

Rapid Creek above Pactola has come up a bit in flow, but will still fish well with nymphs. Bigger patterns will work better in the dirtier water – North Fork Specials, Jig Hare’s Ears, Mop Flies, Pat’s Rubber Legs, Rainbow Czech Nymphs, and worm patterns in size 10-14 will work well. Most of the fish are going...

Fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills, particularly on Rapid and Spearfish Creeks. Nymph fishing has been fantastic, and there’s been some good dry fly fishing some days as well. With the warmer temps and longer days, it’s time to get out and do some spring fishing!

Rapid Creek above Pactola should be opening up and fishing well. The flows have come up a bit and the water is a little off color, but you can do well fishing nymphs and smaller streamers. Mop Flies, San Juan Worms, and larger jig flies in size 10-14 will work well.

Black Hills Fishing Report – 1/7/2021

Ryan Gabert Black Hills Fishing Black Hills Fishing Reports Fly Fishing Uncategorized

First fishing report of the new year! We are still in an unseasonably warm weather pattern, so there have been plenty of opportunities to get out fishing, and the fishing has been solid.

Rapid Creek has been fishing great, particularly in town. There has been some fantastic dry fly fishing some days, but most days it’s a nymph fishing game. Perdigons and midges in olive, purple, and pink have been hard to beat, but you can do well with a variety of other thin bodied nymphs in 16-20. Most of the fish are moved into the deeper holes and...

We’re set to get some winter weather this weekend, but the forecast starting early next week looks to be conducive to getting out and doing some fishing. The fishing has been solid on Rapid, Spearfish, and Castle Creeks, as well as local lakes!

Rapid Creek above Pactola has been good, and is better the further upstream you get. There’s some larger fish around closer to the lake, but there’s going to be considerably more fish the further upstream you go. Nymph fishing will pick up the most fish right now – Jig Hare’s Ears, Pheasant Tails, Frenchies, He Men, Pergidons,...
