Holmes Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Most anglers have been visiting Holmes Creek on the weekends. Fishing pressure is very light on weekdays. Earlier this week, one angler had a great day targeting crappie and trout. He fished all along the western shore and caught a lot of crappie. He fished for about an hour, starting at 9:45 a.m., and used perch-colored Rapalas. He also caught trout off the point on the eastern shore, using a black-and-yellow Panther Martin spinner. When fishing from the shore, be sure to cast in different directions and vary your lure-retrieving speed. Please remember to show respect and pick up your trash at this privately owned waterbody. And don't forget to obtain your Walk-in Access authorization number before visiting the reservoir.
