Creek Reservoir was constructed during the 1950s. It is privately owned and operated for irrigation,
but is accessible to the public.
reservoir has an average depth of 10 feet, maximum depth of 17 feet, and covers
60 surface acres. Rainbow trout are the principal
sport fish, but largemouth bass are also present. The best fishing generally occurs during spring,
early summer, and fall. Bait fishing is
productive using nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, Power Bait, and marshmallows. Fly-fishing is best from a float tube using a
black or olive wet fly at the creek inlet.
Camping is primitive on
the south and west shorelines and since the reservoir is located on private
land, please treat the area respectfully.
Travel 31 miles north of Winnemucca on US 95 to the junction of SR 140, then 40 miles west to the “Nine Mile Road” turnoff. This road may be trouble during the “rainy” season.
