Trout fishing in the black hills

Recommended Posts

Hi, were heading to the black hills for vacation, and was wondering if anyone knew of any good trout fishing/tips for the area. We'll be staying near keystone if that helps at all. Thanks, Austen

my response must've gotten removed.... must've been unauthorized links or something..... but do a google search for trout and black hills and the first couple links that show up are regarding fishing in that area..... in one of 'em there's a fly shop you could talk to in order to get some first-hand info as to what waters to ply.....

supposed to be killer trout fishing around there..... the reservoir (pactola?) has some big fish, as well as a few of the tailwater rivers nearby...... also an abundance of smaller streams..... good luck.....

pactola has some big lake trout (big for S.D.)...the waters of the Black Hills are up this year, I will be heading out for a day or two of trout fishing after the rally.

Thanks for the responses. Wish I would've posted this earlier, we ended up fishing in Sylvan, which is a really cool, scenic lake. I'm not real familiar with brown trout and the others in the BH, but it was fun, had a few bites, some of the other people were catching a few but I wish I would've known a little more about the lake. Fun though.

Glad you liked the information before it was removed. Can't mention published books without getting in trouble I guess. In general, contact a fly fishing shop local to your destination, they will share information with you unlike some web sites that will remain nameless.

Man i wish I would have looked here a week ago I grew up in the Black Hills and could have sent you in some nice lakes. If you go again remember these lakes Lakota, Deerfield (specifically dutchmans gulch) and Robiax. And if you are into fly fishing find a little creek then follow by foot till you find a beaver dam chances are you will be the first person to cast a fly into the water in years and about the only way to catch "wild fish" in the hills

    • So I know youre supposed to run the ice castle's AC from a 30amp outlet, but could I run it off of a standard 20amp outlet out of my garage? I would think if it gets too hot the 20amp fuse will pop? I've ran it for a short period of time before; but I was just thinking in case we have company over some time and needed some overflow sleeping arrangement... Its connected via a 50' 12 guage cord I beleive
    • Why are we still allowing deer farms to exist and spread disease?  
    • I'm assuming based on the rubbery consistency that some kind of silicon caulk was used.  Check this site out:  https://www.hunker.com/12314253/how-to-remove-a-silicone-stain-from-concrete   Good Luck.
    • Just bought a new house and the garage floor is a bit pitted.  I was planning on resurfacing it as a DIY job since right now will be the last time in the next 20 years the garage is empty.   There are a few spots where the pitting is pretty deep and the previous owner plugged them up with some sort of rubbery filler that has the consistency of industrial bubble gum.  Any ideas on how to get that stuff out of there?  I tried prying it out with a screwdriver, hoping it would pop out a like plug, but not so much.  Also thought I might be able to blast it with a power washer but I haven't tried that yet.     Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I can't even think of the proper search terms to ask google about this.
    • Thought this was a good pod cast   http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/doug-duren-bryan-richards
    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.
