Otter Creek - Mid to Lower

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Pound the banks with streamers, crayfish patterns and small poppers to target feisty Smallmouth Bass. These river fish pull hard and put up a great battle. For this type of fishing I like to use a 6wt or even an 8wt with at least 6 foot 10-15 pound leader.

Seven-day forecast 

The USGS gauge bumped from 512 to 750 overnight. A storm dumped quite a bit of rain last night in the mountains. One trib the New Haven River went from just 95 cfs to 545cfs overnight. This should improve the fishing! It's looks hot and sunny with few chances of rain for the next 5 days!
