Enjoy fall fishing at Otter Creek Ponds

Casper -

Recently the Casper Fat Fish Racers bike club helped the Wyoming Game and Fish in Casper stock Otter Creek Ponds on Muddy Mountain.  This remote set of beaver ponds poses many challenges to fish biologists and fish culturists, but volunteers seem to have found the best way to stock it.  First,  the bikers loaded their backpacks with water, then came the fish and finally, off the bikers went.  They biked 2.5 miles with fish on their backs and then hiked the fish the remaining 0.5 mile.  The ponds received over 450 brook trout, all of which survived the bike/hike to their new home.  These ponds offer excellent brook trout fishing not too far from Casper.  A huge thanks goes to the Fat Fish Racers for helping Game and Fish!
