The area behind the viewing stand that we use on the Glendale River is a traveling route for grizzly bears.  It is easier to walk the riverbed and possibly pick up the occasional salmon than through the thicker bush.  As can be seen by the vegetation on this bear’s coat it is using the river as a road rather than a fishing area. Also the size of this grizzlies belly it is a pretty good indication that it can catch salmon when it is hungry.
