Currant Creek Reservoir

Image of Currant Creek Reservoir

Currant Creek Reservoir is a beautiful, high-alpine water set in a huge valley with pines and aspen. The reservoir has abundant native cutthroat trout and large tiger trout. The streams feeding the reservoir have cutthroat trout and the stream below the reservoir has brown trout higher up and rainbow trout closer to Highway 40. There is a developed campground and lots of primitive camping in the area.

Latest fishing report

There was no ice on Dec. 5, but that may change quickly. As long as there is open water, try trolling spoons or chankbaits and drifting traditional trout baits off the bottom. Shore anglers should try floating their baits two to three feet above the sinker with floating bait or a marshmallow. (Last update 12-09-16)
