Saw some critter that was either a mink or a fisher on Mesa Canyon,looked like a big heavily furred cat but with more of a snout and pink nose,kind of a cinnamon color.

I am not wildlife expert either but I have not heard of Fisher Cats in CO, lost a cat in NH growing up and that was the assumed culprit.
I have seen a couple of them there. Larger and darker than a Pine Martin and where the Pine Martin seems curious about how to eat you, a Fisher Cat just wants to do it. I have a friend that works for the DOW, I'll ask her if they are here. In the meantime I will keep my eyes out on the Upper C for Otters, another critter I haven't seen since I was a kid. Cool.

Last summer we saw about 6-8 otters playing in a eddy across from the anticline on Ruby-Horsethief. It was really cool as I had never seen a river otter in the wild before and had always wanted to.

I've seen otters a bunch in westwater, typically in the spring months. Also saw one on the moab daily stretch once. Stuff 'em with pepper jack and deep fry 'em for great otter poppers!

I have seen them almost on every westwater run around the hole at little D. Glenwood Canyon just down from Grizzly creek a few times as well just after run off on river left.

I was sure I saw one with a fish in his mouth scrambling up the river right bank at the entrance to Number 4 on the Numbers in January. I've since talked to a couple people who've told me that there are no Otters in the Ark. ???

Leo,Minor point,a fisher is different from a fisher cat. The latter are from Asia.I am not sure if fishers are in Co. or not,saw a picture on the net of the critter in question,a mink I believe.
