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.
This last photo was over thirty minutes after the first photo posted. We had watched the humpbacks feeding all this time and they had moved away from the Oliver Clark and it had started to slowly move away from the herring ball but the whales kept feeding in the area for another fifteen minutes. It was an experience my guest will never forget. I know that it is one of the highlights of fifteen years of guiding for Grizzly Bear Lodge.
