(businesspress24) - According to Lochow Ranch Pond and Lake Management, they consider otter predation to be the most detrimental factor facing private lakes in Texas today.

River Otters are becoming increasingly prevalent throughout Texas and they have observed firsthand how devastating to fisheries they can be. They are elusive primarily nocturnal predators that target larger adult fish of all species.

A fishery or private lake can always restock forage fish but ten pound bass are essentially not replaceable.

Because River Otters are near-sighted, due to underwater sight adaptation, they may come within a few feet of a person or a boat. Otters go where there is food and water flow, so a fishery can be an ideal habitat. Otters generally feed on prey that is easy to catch. That would include slower-moving species such as bass, sunfish, shiners and catfish.

Otters may den in rock crevices, hollow logs, abandoned beaver structures or abandoned human structures. Otters are a regulated species, so it is necessary to know the laws of the state. They are efficient predators.

If River Otters are present or suspected on the property, contact Lochow Ranch and they will direct clients to a licensed trapper.
