Currant Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report slow to fair fishing for cutthroat, rainbows and tiger trout Fishing is best in the early morning or late afternoon or evening. Anglers with fish finders have seen fish cruising about 30 feet down, so try using deeper running lures and baits. Anglers using worms or a worm-and-marshmallow combination and fishing a couple feet above the bottom have reported hot fishing. A recent biological survey found fish up to six pounds. Almost all of the fish had been feeding on snails. Even though catch rates vary, most anglers are happy after a trip to Currant Creek Reservoir. The Uintas have been receiving scattered afternoon showers.
