Searching for Lurking Otters

Otter

I am obsessively scouring the riverbank for otters and have found another something lurking in the river under an exposed tree root. I’ve surprised the creature twice, but have not yet identified it. What I see is a short, energetic bust of splashing, lasting not much more than a second, whatever it is doesn’t break the water surface, and the animal is gone. I’m left with an impression of seeing a dull white flash. I wonder if I’m disturbing a resting a pike.
