I caught about 6 hatchery rainbows up to about 13 inches on olive wooly buggers near the footbridge over the inlet of Deerfield Reservoir in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The water was high and a little off-color, so I swithched to a prince nymph which has a little white on it and caught a wild brook trout and a wild rainbow (both small). Lots of rock bass in the lake and didn't have a boat, so I fished mainly above the reservoir in the creek. Sorry, no pictures.

Thanks for the report. I love the Black Hills.

Sounds like a fun trip. I'd love to see some pictures from that area, too... I don't really have a good sense of what it's like.
