Yes,wolves can swim pretty good,they can also fish.
Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby

I'm pretty sure they don't fish. However they do eat the heads and tails of Salmon left by bears.

Anyhow, wolves are very strong swimmers. Their feet are webbed, mostly for snow but it also helps in water.

Wolves can swim, as most mammals can.

However, information about them being able to fish or not is spotty. More research is currently needed to completely confirm this.
