The viewing stand used by Grizzly Bear Lodge on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River overlooks a pool filled with salmon. The grizzly bears that come to feed in the pool pick the salmon from the bottom and remain in the water while they consumer their catch. It is an energy efficient way to feed, as they are not chasing salmon in the shallow water rather sitting in one place and eating. This grizzly displays a moth full of salmon as well as the remains of the salmon in its paw.
Wild River Day – 3 of 7
On completion of the short walk from the boat pool to the cabin the first order of business is to make sure there are no grizzly bears below the bank by the cabin and then we move to the deck. (I mention this important fact because on one of my visit I came within several meters (yards) of a bear). Just past the cabin there are falls on the river and a fish ladder were the grizzly bears come to fish. We normally sit on the cabin deck as it is possible to see the approaches to this fishing area and when bears appear we then leave the deck (picture 2) and follow Rick for a closer view and great pictures.
