The level of Squaw Creek Reservoir was lowered during the summer of 2017 in order to make improvements to the water storage capacity.  While reports are that angling is still good to excellent it is expected to be somewhat difficult to access the reservoir as the shoreline is exposed and extremely muddy.  Equipment is also present and operating at the reservoir and will be for most of the fall.  While these actions are unfortunate they will benefit the reservoir in the long term and will also improve the access to the fishery.  Please remember that Squaw Creek Reservoir is a privately owned reservoir and use is allowed by the landowner, please respect this at all times.
