Huntington Reservoir

Huntington Reservoir is also known as Mammoth Reservoir. The lake regularly produces tiger and cutthroat trout up to 18 inches long. Float tubers usually have the best success.

Latest fishing report

Huntington Reservoir is about 17 percent full, and the boat ramp is well out of the water. Fishing is still good, though, especially if you can fish from a float tube or a small boat. With fly tackle, anglers have been successful using size 6 bead headed crystal buggers in black/orange/pearl color combinations. You might also do well with bead headed soft hackle flies with tan tinsel, brown/green/pearl crystal buggers, or plum leeches with a purple tail. The tiger trout have been between 14 and 18 inches long. Huntington Reservoir may soon freeze over, so use caution here. (Last update 11-15-18)
