Arrow Otter Creek Outdoor Rec. Area Now Open

Just thought I would share this. A park that I used to spend alot of time at that closed 2 years ago is now open again. This park is 30 minutes south of Louisville KY. You can find more info here:

KY: Kentucky Dept Fish and Wildlife -

I was out there today for biking/ trail cleaning but spent a few minutes near the creek and watched a fellow fly fishing catch several trout in the time I was watching. The creek was stocked last week and the Park operators plan to stock 4 times a year. so you if your ever in this area give this creek a try.

Mike

I've never been fishing at Otter Creek, but I'd sure like to get out there! I Remember going to the park decades ago as a child, but I didn't get into fly fishing until recently.

I've got a week or two left until my broken right foot is healed up, but then I'm planning on giving it a try.

Do you think the locations recommended on the Derby City Fly Fishers' web site are good? And what flies have you been having luck with?

BTW: love your videos!

I'm almost always free for fishing... or, at least, I'll make myself available. haha. I'm a local photographer and fly fisherman in the Louisville area. If there's a club or group of you guys that fish Otter.. please include me.

Tight Lines!



EDIT: I drove down to check out water levels today. The creek looks good. There were a couple of gents fishing off the bank with what appeared to be some kind of weird casting outfit. Definitely wasn't a fly rod... scared me. In any case, I snapped some pics.
