What were that many of the rodents doing in the water that day ? Very odd a trout could happen upon that many.

Hard to see details (or 'dem tails'), but are you certain those are shrews?
Unlike mice, shrews are usually solitary, so finding this many in a trout would be very odd. More likely that a nest of mice was flooded.

Either way, pretty cool and unusual. Thanks for posting.

Ard/other's who fish Alaska will have to chime in on this. Been years since I fished in Alaska, but a 'mouse' pattern was a 'go to' for large trout.

Must have been bath day for the Shrew Family!!! Maybe they thought the grass was greener on the other side of the river and didn't think they would end up somewhere inside the rainbow!

I have commonly seen mammals in bellies. I have cleaned many brookies that had a mouse/shrew or two in them...
