good fur for fly tying on them.
I know we are talking river systems and the salt but I noticed this weekend a family of otters is now patrolling the north shore of Pass Lake. I watched a large male exit the water with a fish that looked to be around 20"!

I've seen them there as well. The first time I saw them, all I saw was a huge wake traveling parallel to shore as I was rigging up. I couldn't figure out what it was, thinking that maybe it was a big fish skimming the surface for the 'mid emergers. It wasn't until my next trip there that I saw the same wake again then saw the head and body of that big boy.
I watched a mother otter drag a large sole onto a South Sound beach with her 3 kits following behind. I noticed them because the kits were squealing in anticipation. They all circled around and between squeals chomped away devouring the fish in a matter of minutes.
Monkey's of the water world....
I hooked an otter on a cutty this spring... turns out a 4 wt is not big enough.
Haven't witnessed any on the Snohomish, I have seen one while on Mukilteo beach recently. I have come across minks though while fishing the upper reaches before it turns into the Snoqualamie. They are the surviving remnants of a mink farm that once existed in the area...
