One of the wild critters of the Delta

I know there's a fishing tournament going on, and we'll get back to that in a minute.

 

But while we're waiting for the anglers to make their 90-minute run down the Sacramento River, check out this dude.

 

This is a river otter Shaye Baker and I saw on Day 1 while we were following Brent Ehrler. He came out from behind a rock and cleaned his face off before jumping in the water and swimming up the shoreline.

 

The otter, not Ehrler.
