Otter Creek - Mid to Lower

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

This time of year for Trout I find them in the fast water right below any of the waterfalls on the Otter. Price Nymphs, ISO Nymphs and the Prince are my go to flies. Try using a nymph rig with an indicator and also a Hopper dropper set up to work the fast water. To help get it down sometimes I even use a conehead Muddler Minnow as the lead fly.

Seven-day forecast 

The current flow of the Otter is 431 CFS with great clarity. The water temp has plummeted to 39 because of recent snow and cold overnight temps in the 20's.
Expect rain now through Monday. The Vt Trout season is over but you can catch and release Trout year round on the Otter.
