Slipstream--At least a half dozen times in my life, and always in Deep Creek, I have seen a hellbender with a trout in its mouth. In every instance I would notice something white on the creek bottom and, looking closer, would discover it was a trout's belly (with a part of the trout being in the mouth of a hellbender). I would also add that from time to time as a boy I caught them on throwlines/trot lines, They are still present in Deep Creek in appreciable numbers.
