Trophy Trout Pond

Spearfish Creek Fly Shop has access to a private trout fishery located about 45 miles from Spearfish. This trophy rainbow trout fishery has been developed over the past seven years. This is a full day trip that will create lifetime fishing memories. Rainbow trout up to 25 inches offer a once in a lifetime fishing experience that you permanently etch in your fishing memories. Fishing will either be from a boat, a kayak, or walk and wade. Nymph fishing is the preferred method of fly fishing, however when it gets closer to sunset, the dry fly fishing is awesome. We recommend using a stronger leader, probably about a 3X. These fish do not get fished often, so they are not leader shy.

Lunch is included in the cost of the trip, as well as an opportunity to experience wonderful wildlife viewing opportunities on the trip from the fly shop.

We do pay the landowner a rod fee per fishing guest-so the cost of the trip is a little higher-however the size of the fish and the total fishing experience will be a memory you will always treasure. Check out the photos below to see some awesome fish and some very happy fly fishers. Cost of this trip is $599 for two anglers for a full day. This is strictly a catch and release fishery, and it is best is the anglers have at least some prior fly fishing experience.
