Otter Creek - Mid to Lower

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Get an early start and fish Perch patterns, Pink/White, all Black and Olive/Orange for Pike. The Otter has dropped to 545 cfs and is clear so starting at day brake and long cast can help put more big fish in the net. Focus on any ditches that are flowing into the creek, log jams, brush piles and deep corners. These are spots the Pike will be looking to ambush prey. Now that the water temps are in the mid 60s retrieve your flies faster but still give it pauses once in a while. When Pike fishing use a wire leader, big net and have long nosed pliers to help remove the fly.

Seven-day forecast 

The current flow of the Otter is 329 CFS with great clarity. The water temp is in the high 60's. Expect it to keep dropping aS not much rain in the forcast till maybe Monday. Should be very sunny for the next few days and very warm.
