Deer Creek Reservoir
Conditions last updated: 07/29/2016
Latest fishing report
Anglers report good walleye fishing just outside of the Charleston arm. Try using Rapalas just off the weedlines in the early to mid-morning hours. Anglers are catching smallmouth bass on jerkbaits and soft plastics along the rocky shorelines. The island and main entrance now have gates. These gates close at 10 p.m. and re-open at 6 a.m. Campground sites must be reserved ahead of time — they are no longer available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Juvenile quagga mussels have been confirmed in a water sample taken from Deer Creek Reservoir. As such, all watercraft exiting Deer Creek are legally required to decontaminate. Decontamination stations are currently operating, but you may want to call ahead to check operating hours. Call the state park at 435-654-0171 to check on current conditions or visit Deer Creek on Facebook to see the latest updates. Water levels are slowly dropping, and the reservoir is currently 76 percent full. (Updated 07-29-2016)
