Holmes Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Holmes has received a lot of angling pressure this week. Anglers are catching trout. The newly stocked fish are readily taking bright-yellow artificial salmon eggs or corn-scented PowerBait. The fish are relatively close to shore, so cast about 25 feet out, parallel with the shore. The trout are also taking dry flies in the evenings. At nearby Andy Adams Reservoir, new fishing regulations are in place. The reservoir will be drained for dam maintenance work during the month of October. Please remember that both of these ponds are on private property. You must obtain a Walk-in Access authorization number and sign in before you fish.
