Currant Creek Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: Anglers report fair fishing from boats, but slow fishing from the shore because of the aquatic vegetation. Try trolling in deeper water or drifting traditional trout baits. Stream fishing for brown trout is good. Anglers report that grasshopper patterns are working well. To increase your fly-fishing success, try rigging a dropper under a grasshopper or stimulator.
