This poster shows a mink, but when I made up the poster I thought it was an otter. Now you know why I'm not a trapper. It was a pretty big mink. From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

Here a stickleback investigates a little piece of grass in the slack water of a beaver pond on a remote stream rumored to have been great for brook trout at one time.  It's now a swampy hellhole ruined by silt-trapping beaver dams, and I found no trout.  Wading it in early April, when the ground was only half-frozen, was a nightmare. From Eddy Creek in Wisconsin.
