Black Hills streams are ideal for fly fishing. Bring your rod to the Sturgis Bike Rally.

These fly fishermen go after trout in Rapid Creek. The warm weather during the Sturgis Bike Rally makes wading fun.

Average size trout at 8-inches at the Sturgis Bike Rally

Granted, those fish won't be trophies. But they will be wild
fish that run from 6- to 10-inches, with some larger fish being caught. A few trout makes for a memorable Sturgis Bike Rally.

That kind of fishing action makes Black Hills streams an
excellent place to initiate someone into the art of trout fishing. You generally get a lot of action.

Brown trout are a Sturgis Bike Rally staple

Brown trout are the main fish in Black Hills streams. These
are mostly hardy wild fish. There is some stocking, but the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department has been going forward with a policy of not stocking hatchery fish where wild fish can maintain their populations.

And that is the case on the main segments of the best
streams - Rapid, Spearfish and Castle creeks. In the smaller streams or the headwaters of the bigger streams you'll catch wild brook trout. They're not big, but they are scrappy.

Think Small at the Sturgis Bike Rally

For secluded Sturgis Bike Rally trout fishing and camping,
you can try the upper stretches of Rapid Creek and Spearfish Creek, as well as Box Elder, French, Beaver and other small streams.

Size 16 and smaller flies are generally used for most
patterns in the Black Hills. During summer when the Sturgis Bike Rally is gong on, you might want to go even smaller.

However, if you fish muddy water in early spring you may
want to try one of the bigger nymphs such as the Montana or Bitch Creek. By weighting these flies and fishing the deeper holes you can sometimes pick up nice-sized trout.
