The bears weren't catching fish for the three hours I was there but had fun talking to people from all over the world and enjoying the scenery. I saw about 20 bears and some up close driving from the highway to Stewart and that was...More

We were there Aug. 8th lots of fish and both bears. One mother had 3 cubs and what a thrill watching them perform right in front of us. The salmon have to be running and they will be there all day not just morning and night.
