Otter Creek is stocked weekly April, May, June, September and October with catchable 10-12 inch brook and rainbow trout. It has been stocked annually since 2006 with fingerling French Creek strain brown trout. Fingerling rainbow trout have been stocked since 2000. The Otter Creek segment from Hornet Road to Echo Valley Park supports trout populations year-round and is the location of the fingerling stocking. The downstream portion of Otter Creek, adjacent to Echo Valley Road, is not a coldwater stream and does not support trout populations during most summers. Part of Otter Creek is in Echo Valley State Park. Easy walking trails are abundant.(2012)

Some limitations may apply for young children and pregnant women. Here’s a Fish Consumption Fact Sheet from the Iowa DNR and the Iowa Dept. of Public Health for more information.
