Mountain whitefish are considered by many fishermen to be unwanted, a competitor species that snatches up freshly deposited salmon and trout eggs. The truth of the matter is the mountain whitefish helps promote a healthy river system, fanning the sandy bottom to stir up the gravels and feed on aquatic insects. This pair shared the water with a immature Chinook salmon and a small steelhead, sometimes laying side by side.join the fish and watch them one on one.
Fishermen only see half of the story. To really get the full picture one must get wet, get cold, get out and explore your local rivers!
