Grizzly bear viewing on the rivers of BC’s Knight Inlet always presents opportunities for interesting photos. It is rare to see a grizzly standing with a salmon. Normally once the bear has the salmon it starts to eat immediately so it can get back to fishing for the next salmon. This bear seems in good shape but it still has long legs. The long legs means that it does not have the barrel of a fat belly that bears get when they are closer to hibernation that make their legs appear to be short and stumpy. Being that this photo was taken at the end of August with two more months to fatten it is more likely that this bear’s stomach is full for the day. Being that it has been eating sedge grass for most of the summer its stomach has not stretched to accommodate the larger meals.
The main complaint we receive from the guests is that they now know why they are asked to keep the weight of their luggage down because if they didn’t the plane would not get off the water due to weight gain. Looks like halibut, salmon, peas, rice or couscous, eggplant casserole, do not forget the fresh homemade bread at the other end of the table and wine. And this is after either homemade soup or salad. Dinner is a social time served by and eaten with your guides and the only rule we abide by is “What happens in the boat stays in the boat unless the guest mentions it first.”.
