John Redmond and Otter Creek Wildlife Area Fall 2021 Conditions-
I expect average habitat conditions this year for waterfowl on John Redmond Reservoir. Otter Creek Marshes, located below John Redmond Dam- Only the upper marsh will have water this year. It has excellent vegetation, and is currently 2/3 full.
The Sedimentation Basins located on west side, below dam, are not open for hunting, and are privately owned and operated.
|Expected hunting success||Poor. Teal are just not in yet in any hauntable numbers.|
|Comments||For information on Flint Hills National Wildlife Area and the marshes on the upper end of the lake please contact FHNWR @ 620-392-5553.|
