Went on the Niangua River to fish one hole. Wasn't getting a bite, then seen dead and dyeing Trout, then seen four Otters working that hole mad.gif

Went on up caught couple nice Rainbows for me and my wife before dark.

Where were you fishing? We tried Barclay Monday, but nothing.

Barclay below the riffle. Wouldn't believe it them Rainbows were trying to swim, go belly up, Otters just doing what they do.

Lots of people fish there and it could be poor handling. Hard to tell which predator it was.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Yep, manufactured fish.

Well when you lay eyes on them doing it, it tends to leave no doubt.

I know another hole on up I caught fish, cleaned then there, went back next day seen where Otters had ate my cleanings, couldn't get a bite in that hole for days.

Just to let you know back in the '80's I helped stock Otters up North. I was concerned about them, was told there would never be enough to Trap they was more of a novelty.

Last Jan we saw two otters above the dam at Bennett. One had a fish on the bank of the island eating it. The other was swimming and came up to the surface to look at us every few minutes. Watched them for a few minutes as we fished up stream. Did not catch a fish in that area. Moved down to zone 2 and got back in to them.
