We recently got a shipment of Outcast boats in stock for all of your stillwater and river fishing needs! With the higher water we’ve had this spring, a lot of folks have been lake fishing around the Black Hills, as well as for warmwater species around western South Dakota as well. The Outcast boats we got in are a great, inexpensive way to get out on the water where the fish are!

We often forget how good the lake fishing is around the Hills with the abundance of trout streams we have. There are a ton of small lakes that are...

Black Hills Fishing Report

We’ve had a lot drier weather overall for the past few days, and it’s helped a lot of the local streams come down to fishable levels. Most places are back to normal, with the exception of most of Rapid Creek. A few places are still a bit off color, but that can actually be an advantage much of the time. The weather this week looks perfect to get out on the water in the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola near Silver City is still high, and very dirty. It will be awhile before this comes...

We’ve had more than our fair share of moisture over the past week, and a lot of the streams around the area are pretty high. It looks like the weather over the next week should be much drier, and the creeks should continue to recede to a fishable level pretty quickly. 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...

With the spring storm we just got slammed with the past couple days, a few of our local streams maybe a bit on the high side for a bit. There’s still an ample amount of good stream fishing to be had, but we have a ton of lakes with great fishing that get overlooked by most fly anglers. A lot of the folks in the shop are deterred by the higher flows, which means it’s a fantastic time to try lake fishing, especially if you’re not used to wading/fishing our streams at bigger flows than average. There’s tons of great lakes...

We’ve been in quite the cool, damp weather pattern over the past few days, and the next few days look to be more of the same. Most of the creeks in the central Black Hills are high but fishable, with the northern hills streams being more normal flows. Despite the strange weather, the fishing has been excellent throughout the Black Hills!

Rapid Creek above Pactola is high, and will most likely come up quite a bit with the moisture over the next couple days. Let this come down below 200 cfs before making the drive up.
