Report: Well i was at currant creek last weekend and it was the best fishing of my life!!! We caught and kept our limit within the first 20 minutes and stayed and fished the rest of the day. We caught a whopping 28 fish on the first day!!!! and the biggest was a 28 inch cuttthroat!!! On the second day we caught over 100 crayfish and had a feast later that day... suggestions for the next guy would be to go up on a early friday and fish it up before everyone else gets there for the weekend HAVE FUN!!!!
