I saw 3 otters on the Colorado, on the Daily in Utah. They were swimming between Sandy Beach and the Trash Compactor playhole. They seem to be making a comeback on the Colorado. Hope this helps.

It sounds like they are doing pretty good in the Colorado River basin. I was in my my lake kayak on Shadow Mountain July, and had 3 Otters spend about 5 minutes "spy-hopping" and checking me out. I had my 2, 4 month old pups with they may have been thinking snack-time!

saw 3 river otters on the North Platte in April last spring. They had made a slide on a snowbank and were otter launching off it into the river. We watched them playing for quite some time it was awesome, so awesome that we decided to join in the fun and made a 60ft kayak snowslide into the river down stream. For the records I also saw a mountain lion running on rocks along side the river exitting gore canyon in 2006!
