Grizzly bears will patiently stand in the river and wait for salmon to swim up stream to the spawning channel. The viewing stands used by the lodge overlook both the natural river and the man made channel that leads to the entrance of the spawning area. The bears tend to grab the salmon with their mouths or to pin them to the bottom with a paw and then grab either way it requires waiting for the right moment to make a move. And from the look of this bear allot of concentration is required as they do not spent time checking out the click of cameras and only look up if there is a loud noise.
