This reservoir filled with the recent rains and both Thistle Creek and Whitcomb boat ramps are usable. For the latest information on water levels at Green Peter Reservoir check with the Army Corps of Engineers’ website for more information.

This large reservoir gets stocked annually with 20,000 hatchery trout. It will be stocked this week with 2,800 trout. Look for them in cooler, deeper water and around ledges, drop-offs, and underwater structure. Smallmouth bass also like to hang out near underwater structure and tend to be found in shallower water. Also look for them near rocky outcrops. Recent fishing reports are that the bass fishing is good with fish weighing in around 5 lbs being caught.

Best bet for anglers without a boat is to drive to the top of the reservoir where Quartzville Creek enters the reservoir. Large trout will sometimes forage where the river brings in food swept down from upstream
