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

Anglers report good fishing. Fish are fairly active and easy to catch once you find them. The best success has been reported on the north side of the reservoir, uplake from the dam. Small, red and pink jigs including Berkley Atomic Teasers tipped with mealworms proved very effective. Ice thickness at the dam was approximately eight to ten inches this week. The road is open to the dam. If you travel beyond the dam, you must use a snow machine. (Last update 01-06-17)
