Currant Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report slow to fair fishing near the dam and fair to good fishing near the inlet. They are catching rainbows, tigers and a few cutts. The ice is roughly eight to 12 inches thick, but it can be thinner in places. Check any ice carefully before venturing out, especially near the inlet. Warmer flows will undermine the ice, creating thin areas. As anglers can testify, the flows can hollow out the ice fairly quickly, sometimes within 30 minutes.
