Default Deer Creek Reservoir Fishing Report

We went fishing over the weekend at Deer Creek Reservoir. I don’t normally keep any but the wife wanted me to smoke a few so I bagged a couple nice trout and released the rest. Both I and my father-in-law only used two flies all day long. The fish were feeding, but nothing was rising to the surface so it was nymphing all the way. I used the same glo-bug and a zebra midge for around 4 hours for fishing. We caught about 2/3s on the zebra midge and the rest on the glo-bug. I estimate we caught around 40 fish between the 2 of us. It was decent weather, partly cloudy and not too cold. We didn’t see any one else the whole time we were fishing. That is why I like fish the winter time.

Yes, the inlet. There was people upstream from us on the other side of the road, but we went more towards the res. There is ice starting to form on the banks but it was mostly open water still.
