Have seen otters on nearly every evening on the lower Dart this season with half eaten seatrout quite a common sight ,sadly also diseased fish in quite large numbers some very near death one pool held four largish trout all completely pickled white all over a very sad sight indeed.View attachment 711
A 6lb seatrout that I found dead at dawn on R Dart. Fresh and apparently very healthy, other than the bite and claw marks.
Heard an almighty scrap just upstream around 0200, roughly where I later found this - wedged in between rocks at 2' depth. I presume it was otters fighting over the kill.
