This photo is of a large male grizzly bear sitting patiently waiting for a salmon to drift by to become lunch. The pool by the viewing stand is just below the salmon spawning channel and also the area that the dead salmon float too before entering the main river. It is a good place to sit and save energy as the salmon come to the bears and all that is required is a quick grab for a meal. The other side of the stands is the main river and a more active area of fishing.

Comparing the photos in today’s and yesterday’s post they do not look like the same grizzly but the camera time stamp says they are the same. This is an August bear and does not have the fat layer it will have after feeding on salmon for September through October. This is noticeable by how low the bear is in the water is yesterday’s post. A fat bear would have much more of it’s back out of the water.Visit our Blog
