How Brown Bears Fish The Falls

The Falls on Brooks River are a physical barrier to the countless salmon trying to swim upstream to spawn each summer. So if you’re a hungry bear, you should gather there to catch lunch (and breakfast. And dinner.) The sheer number of jumpers might confuse you so try to train your eye on a single sockeye at a time.

Fishing Brooks Falls takes patience, perseverance, and paws. It might be a while before you snatch a salmon, but when the time comes, try to pin it to the stream bed or your fur Рor better yet, catch it in your waiting mouth!
