I'll be in the Hill City area Saturday afternoon thru Friday. We're staying at Rafter J Ranch. I have no clue on the fishing in the area. I think we'll have too many other things to see & do to get any fishing in. Good Luck

fly fishing for trout. Black Hills is excellent. There is a good fly shop in Rapid City that can help with local conditions.

If your not tied down to the KOA campground the entire stay. Make your way up to the Rochford area of the hills. There are a couple nice campgrounds in this area and not so crowded with other campers also. Some of the better trout streams are located in and around the town.

Kind of cool to see some of the old mills and mines also. Pick yourself up a National forest service map of the hills and it will show all the old mines and mills of the region, along with all roads for the area. Amazing what you find off the beaten path sometimes.

Hope this helps and enjoy your stay.

Just wanted to say Thank you for all the help. I did end up dong some fishing and caught a few trout for the campfire. Nothing like fresh trout. i ended up fishing the trout pond at Palmer Gulch, Horse thief lk and Sylan lk. I wish i had a lil more time to fish, now that I kinda got a feel for how and what to expect. But oh well, that just means I have to go back there again.

Again,, Thank you

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
