Game Fish Present: Primarily Brook trout, Rainbow trout, and Brown trout.
Description: Several streams flowing off the Green Mountain and the Taconic Mountain ranges form the Otter Creek. The streams are spring fed and the southern section of the creek flows through some extensive wetlands. Otter Creek and its tributaries have excellent natural reproduction that is supplemented by stocking by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
Gear Suggestions: Fly fishing, spinners and bait fishing are allowed on the river. Certain sections of the Otter Creek have restricted creel limits.
Season and Restrictions: For a complete description of fishing regulations and license fees, visit the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department web site.
Access: Otter Creek flows northerly along Route 7 in Dorset and Wallingford, Vermont. There are several turnouts that provide parking for foot access to the Otter Creek. Several of the access points are across private lands that may contain grazing cattle. Please remember to close cattle gate when entering and leaving pastures.
