Kentucky fishing licenses expire at the end of February, so I decided to take mine out for one last spin yesterday. I went to Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area, since it had been a very long time since I had been out there, and it’s one of my favorite spots to be outdoors.
I parked at the end of the road that leads down to the area near the Blue Hole, and hike from there. I headed downstream first, and fished in spots I could get down to the water. The banks were steep and slick with mud, so I had to find gullies that I could descend through and gravel bars to fish from. Fortunately, there are quite a few of those.
The first spot I fished in, I got a couple of good hits on a spinner. The second hit, I could see the fish in the water, thrashing; it looked great, certainly a respectable size fish, but it threw the hook.
