I remember this day well. Prior to August 25 all grizzly bear watching is in the Glendale River estuary. It was a slow day with no bears and I was pulling the skiff up river in low water. If one waits for the water to rise with the tide it is much easier but then the water is too deep for the grizzlies to trying and catch the salmon as they try to move up over the shallow gravel bars. We had just reached an area below a gravel bar when these grizzlies appeared….
It is late August and a grizzly bear and cub in Knight Inlet’s Glendale River wait for the tide to rise and bring in another school of salmon. The salmon school in the bay and with higher water they move up the river to the spawning areas. We are in our viewing boat also waiting for the salmon and the excitement of watching grizzlies fish.Visit our Blog
