Otter Creek - Mid to Lower

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

This time of year the Pike fishing is outstanding ! Yesterday I had a client catch 4 Pike. His first one ever was 33" and we ended the day getting a trophy that was just over 39"!! We were focusing on spots where rivers and farm field ditches enter the Creek. We caught fish in Proctor all the way to Weybridge. It was a full day walk n wade trip and we covered a ton of water. Pink / White and Red / White flies had the most action. Use a 8-10wt with sinking line. Have a steel leader, have long nose pliers and a big net with you when targeting Pike.

Seven-day forecast 

The current flow of the Otter is 1280 with great clarity. The water temp is 40. The Otter will be high for probably at least two weeks. Very little water flooded into fields as most has drained back into the river.
