so today i say my very first river otter while fly fishing today! i was fishing around a giant boulder that had a cut under it from water erosion and all of a sudden it popped out no more than 2 feet from me stood up looked at me for 5-10 seconds and darted back into the water under the boulder! i left the area because i didnt want to disturb it anymore.
i filled out a sighting report on the parks and wildlife website, but it brings up some questions i have for everyone.
1. have any of you seen river otters recently?
2. was i doing something it didn't like for it to come so close to me?
im interested in all of your guys thoughts on this!
