Lots of good fly fishing in the Black Hills!  And June is a great time to be there.

There are quite a few areas nice areas to fish in the Hills.  Some are wild trout that can be tough; others are stockers for entertainment value.

Water levels, or lack of, have been a problem out there in recent years.

Well fly fishing of course, but the end of July it will be a bit tough as the streams warm up a lot.

One thing that my wife really liked out there was going to the caves,   there are 2 that are ran by the national parks service and the tours were top notch.  Wind cave NP at http://www.nps.gov/archive/wica/Visiting.htm

Also Jewel Cave at http://www.nps.gov/jeca/

Just about any thing along the Tours’ traps type of stuff.  The gun fight in the street were OK.

Len,

Well, then.  If you guys are into wild-life happy, get up early in the morning while in the hills and drive through Custer State park to view the buffalo as they start stirring.  Talk to a park ranger where the best bet to find them is.

Also, if you have time, the Sage Creek Grille in Custer (the town) is outstanding.  Our friend Nancy owns it, or used to anyways.

The Needles highway is a must, and so is hiking Harney Peak, that is, if you are spending any time in the Hills.
