    Default Manzanita Lake

    If any of you tubers and 'tooners are planning a trip to Lake Manzanita in the near future, be careful with your feet dangling in the water. You might piss off some of the locals.

    Anyone wanna bet that person thought it’d be cool to swim with the otter. Just like those people who get 10’ away from the bison in Yellowstone.

    Might well have been the case. I think most wild creatures, including otters, do their best to avoid humans unless provoked or feel threatened.

    It might of had a baby or babies in the area?

    I have seen a lot of river Otters, even big ones in the Amazon and they never get close to humans but don't seem threatened?

    This may have been a brilliant ploy by a smart angler to deter tourists given the explosion of rentals up on Manzanita...

    Last year I had people row right up to my pontoon and ask if I was fishing...

    That said hope the person is OK.

    A very plausible explanation for what happened.

    I got this in an email from Recreation.gov yesterday: "For your safety and until further notice, Manzanita Lake is closed to swimming, wading, and use of soft-sided flotation devices due to river otter danger." Looks like float tubes and pontoons are out for a while.

    Additionally, a five-acre portion of Manzanita Lake has been closed.
