The Similkameen and Kettle rivers are fast moving don't freeze solid so there is always an opportunity for them to grab a brown trout, rainbow or dolly varden.He would if he seen what he was looking for. Smaller northern pike is what i see them grab the most from the lakes around here. It must be kind of a migration path here as well cause some only stay around a week in the spring and in the fall they just stay ahead of the ice. I see them harassing ducks, but I've never witnessed a successful duck grab, the ducks always dive and swim away. I see them eating squirrels and deer sometimes but im fairly certain they prefer fish cause after the rivers freeze you really don't see any. Im not a biologist or anything this is just my opinion from watching them, and being watched by them.
