    I did pretend like I was going to grab it. And I could of. My hand was right there and I was crouched over it's body. It didn't move.

    Thanks for posting that Stilly. BKD seems to fit the bill.

    I called and left a message at WFDW fisheries dept to find out if BKD is something their biologists have encountered on the Cedar before.

    I talked to a biologist with WDFW. She said what I described sounds more like nerve damage from injury than it does BKD but that both could be a possibility. BKD isn't all that common in rainbows on the Cedar though.
