Saw on on the green (gates of lodore) last fall. Swam between my raft and the raft behind me. Would have missed the bugger if Pat wouldn't have gotten my attention!

a large family lives in the gunnison gorge, see many babies with parents every year!
you know when the otters are arround because the fishing turns off.
seems so funny that the DOW would stock river otters and a new fangeled strain of rainbow trout (both multi-million dollar projects) into the same river. Rainbows are not native either. Are we fixing the ecosystem or just toying with it???????

I've seen several around Little D on Westwater and they are MUCH bigger than any beaver I've ever seen- an easy 5 feet from nose to tip of the tail. Beautiful, but almost scary at that size.

We spotted a few on Westwater last weekend. One of them were captured on film.

Please ignore my big blue wetsuit butt in the frame. The otter is on the left of the frames.
