Favorite Bear Memory: LaniH

My favorite memory would have to be the little lip fisher subadult. We first noticed her at the end of August and she climbed up on the lip and approached the edge but backed off and sat down. She sat there for a few minutes then got back up and approached the edge again, she didn’t catch a salmon that first time. She kept coming back and before too long success! She finally had caught a salmon!

Throughout September we watched her catch salmon after salmon. It was amazing to see this young subadult bear figure out how to fish one of the harder spots at the falls. I hope to see her back on the lip again this year. – LaniH
