This is a grizzly bear sitting in a pool in the Glendale river in Knight Inlet. The fish that you see are returning Pink Salmon. On a good return the river is black with fish. This is important, because our coastal Grizzly Bears rely on the protein rich salmon to put on enough wait to make it through their winter hibernation.
Running back to the lodge after a successful grizzly viewing trip we are constantly of the lookout for black bear. The key word is “black” and on this day it was an alert guest that spotted the “brown” spot on the beach that “lifted it’s head” as we moved past.
