Saw this yesterday too. A beaver slapping his tail scares the me enough. Just the fact of an swooping in that close woud be pretty wild, but geez watching your line go out then too.

Yep, I've had it happen at the bridges round Cedar Run and Pine Creek. And also at Blackwell.

Cool. Gives new meaning to "fishing to the rise."

I had a G D Pelican swallow a Cuttroat on the Yellowstone at Buffalo Ford! I tried to break him (the fish) off, but was too late.

I've hooked 3 ducks, 2 very young ones and a full grown Mallard Drake. The drake took off and broke the tippet.

I suspect the guy was fishing there with a goal in mind, and if that's the case Fish and Wildlife may be looking for him.

So Chaz believes that this fisherman, Evan?, intentionally played the trout on top of the water to entice a bald eagle to take the fish. If this is the case, what would be the charge, or reason of contact, from the Fish and Wildlife? Is it illegal to feed bald eagles? Just curious.

Insane video otherwise.

While playing with my dog down at the pond, a bald eagle swooped down. It looked like he was either after the dog, or after the stick that I just threw in there for the dog to retrieve. The eagle then landed on a nearby tree. I then walked away from the pond and the eagle came back and took a fish.

They do seem to like my pond.

Here is a different time, and I think he has a muskrat.

Now if I could only attract one of those gopher eating blue herons.
