Currant Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report slow to fair fishing for cutthroats, rainbows and tiger trout. The best time to fish has been in the early morning or late afternoon/evening. Anglers who have fish finders report seeing the fish cruising at about 30 feet down, so try deeper-running lures and baits. Use deep-drifting worms or float a worm-and-marshmallow combination a few feet above the bottom. A recent fish-population survey caught fish up to six pounds, and almost all of the fish had been feeding on snails. The Uintas have received heavy rains over the past few weeks
