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.
