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 full.
The Sedimentation Basins located on west side, below dam, are not open for hunting, and are privately owned and operated.
|Expected hunting success||Shallow water, and shorlines starting to ice up. Boat ramps are currently open but could lock up with below average temperatures. I expect above average success for boat hunters out on the reservoir.|
|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.|
