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.
