Currant Creek Reservoir
Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout
(Jun 16) The boat ramp is open and anglers are catching large tiger trout. The stream fishing has provided some decent-sized brown trout in the last few weeks. Anglers are having success casting from shore with sinking Rapalas in trout patterns. Fly anglers are doing well using tan caddis and caddis pupae. The road from Heber Center Street to the reservoir is still closed.
Matt Warner Reservoir
Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout
(Jun 16) Anglers report fun and fast fishing from the early morning to mid afternoon. Try using PowerBait and jigging for fast results. Tiger trout have been very active from the shoreline. Please remember to pack out what you pack in — we tend to see more litter during summertime months.
Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Rainbow Trout
FISH CONSUMPTION ADVISORY
(Jun 16) Bluegill fishing is hot from a boat. Try fishing along the northern shoreline for decent-sized bluegill, and along the eastern rocky shore for largemouth bass. Try using small jigs tipped with a nightcrawler in about 8 to 15 feet of water. If fishing from the shore, you may use a bubble or bobber to suspend your line off of the bottom. As of April 22, the Division has issued an emergency change, liberalizing limits at Steinaker. There is no daily bag limit for any species: largemouth or smallmouth bass, rainbow or brown trout, and bluegill. This change will remain in effect until December 31, 2017, though this will most likely be extended into 2018. The Bureau of Reclamation will be drawing down Steinaker Reservoir this year and next year in preparation for dam repair work. The drawdown will take the reservoir past dead pool and a complete fish kill is expected. It will be restocked with bluegill, rainbow trout and brown trout upon refilling, and largemouth bass the year after refilling begins.
