As I recall we had a good day on the viewing stands, which are, located an hour and fifteen-minute boat ride up Knight Inlet from the lodge. One grizzly spent most of the two hours we have on the stand directly below eating salmon. It did not bother to waste energy fishing rather it sat in the holding pool to the spawning channel and picked up salmon that drifted down stream. Many grizzly bears fish the spawning channel and wounded and dead salmon drift into the area of the stands making it an ideal area for less energetic bears to fish. If you look closely  this bear is surrounded by pink salmon.
