Spring in Knight Inlet does bring some large grizzly bears to the lodge’s tour area of the Glendale River estuary. The spring and early summer bears are eating the high protein sedge grass or turning over beach rocks in search for other forms of protein. This is a good-sized grizzly for the spring. Keeping a wary eye on the viewing boats. The tide is rising as told by the high water in the river behind the bear. Note the blue heron in the background always fishing.
