This grizzly bear is guarding a good fishing location. Look close at the large rock and notice the salmon blood. It is always nice to have a table close when you are catching food and need to eat it on site. Being able to place the salmon on the rock and eat the best parts always speed up the process and then back to fishing. The best parts depend on the individual grizzly bear and time in the fishing season. The best could be the head for mineral content, eggs and belly high in protein, or the skin with it’s layer of fat. Many bears devour the whole salmon early in the fishing season and then become more selective once they have reached a certain size, which means a successful hibernation.
I always enjoy a sunrise from Grizzly Bear Lodge’s dock. As a guide I am up before 6:30 to make sure the coffee is ready when guests are called and my boat is loaded for the day. Loaded with the picnic lunch, ice in the drinks cooler and enough gas tanks for a full day on the water. Full day being away from the lodge by 7:30 or 8:00 depending on the time of the season and back around 4:00 with a bathroom stop somewhere in between.Visit our Blog
