Spearfish Creek…in Spearfish, South Dakota.

This might seem like an obvious one, but there are some really great brown trout to be had right here in Spearfish. So if you’re stuck in town for some reason or another, like getting your vehicle serviced, then you’ve got more than a few spots to kill some time.

Spearfish Canyon

Another great spot can be found in Spearfish Canyon, right near where Spearfish Creek and Squaw Creek meet. Like in town, you can find wild brown trout, but rainbow trout populate the area too.

Little Spearfish Creek and Hanna Creek

Situated in the limestone cliffs just upstream of Cheyenne Crossing, there are many little streams that are home brook trout. Little Spearfish and Hanna are just two of many secluded spots to be found.

Castle Creek

A tributary of Deerfield Reservoir, Castle Creek is probably the best spot to snag yourself some wild brook trout. Make sure to watch your footing here though; Castle Creek is narrow, deep, and fast.

Iron Creek Lake

A short trot west of Spearfish Canyon, Iron Creek Lake is a no wake/no high-speed watercraft lake, making it a perfect place to catch yellow perch and rainbow trout. Dogs are also allowed if you want to bring your four-legged friend with.

Crow Creek

The biggest stream in the Black Hills, Crow Creek is another good place to look for brown trout. Start checking for spots where Crow Creek crosses I-90 and you’ll be sure to find something.

Winter Fly Fishing

As long as you don’t mind the cold, most of these spots are also great for winter fly fishing. Spearfish Creek, Crow Creek, Hanna Creek, and Castle Creek don’t completely freeze during winter, so pack a thermos or two and get out there.

Ice Fishing

There are three places that locals swear by when it comes to ice fishing: Sheridan Lake, Deerfield Reservoir, and Pactola Reservoir. Sheridan has trout and yellow perch, but most go there to try to get some of the northern pike. Deerfield has rainbow and brook trout and is stocked with splake by the DNR every three years. Pactola is great for rainbow trout, but some cutthroat and wild brown trout can be had there too.

What’s the difference between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S?

Differences between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and Unlimited Sport S

The Jeep, like denim jeans and state fairs, is an American icon. It was there for Allied soldiers in WWII, where it proved its mettle. Since then, the precursor to the Wrangler model—the CJ series—has been commercially available, modernizing with each decade, but still retaining the signature Wrangler look. There’s an indescribable desire to climb in and drive when you see a Wrangler. It looks as good at the beach with top and doors off as it does plowing through the snow or covered in mud.

Now is a great time to own a Jeep Wrangler, but first you have to decide from among its many available packages. We compare two of our most popular Wrangler trims, the Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S.

With that said, here are the differences between the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport S and the Unlimited Sport S. Read the rest of this entry >>
