Otter Creek - Mid to Lower

Tip of the week 

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 3,500 with ok clarity. The water temp is 36. Because of recent snow melt rain the Otter will be high and off color for probably at least week maybe two. The Vt Trout season just opened!
