Currant Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report slow to good fishing for tiger trout and rainbow trout. Try traditional baits (worms or artificial baits), flies, brightly colored spoons or crankbaits. If you're bottom fishing, use something to float your bait about 18–24 inches off the bottom. This will keep your worm above the mud and weeds so it's easier for the fish to find. The roads are drying out.
