Very nice catch! What part of the river are you fishing?

Black Salamander commented on by wacbravo Ottawa, Ontario, Canada9 years ago

I disagree with the previous ID of this spotting being of a Black Salamander (Aneides flavipunctatus). Black Salamanders likely have a very restricted range, "from extreme south-western Oregon south through north-western California, USA" (http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/59116...). This spotting was in Ontario, nearly across the continent. The Blue-Spotted Salamander (Ambystoma laterale) is, however, a native of the spotting area and resembles the one photographed. "Blue-spotted salamanders are found from eastern central North America and stretch in a broad band across to the Atlantic Provinces and northern New England. They are found around the Great Lakes and west as far as central Manitoba. They reach as far north as James Bay, Ontario." (http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/si...).
