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

Fish surveys this past week showed very large tiger trout, lots of rainbow trout and smaller cutthroat. The moss around the edges is getting pretty thick, so plan ahead for your fishing trip. Anglers report the best success with garlic PowerBait, worms and marshmallows. (Last update 08-14-18)
