Brown Bears Fishing

(Photo - Explore.Org)

I just came across this incredible live footage of brown bears fishing on the Brooks River in Alaska's Katmai National Park. They have webcams set up at Brooks Falls, and every year, over a hundred of these bears show up to feast on Sockeye Salmon during spawning season.

The best times to view are between 6:30 AM and 11:30 PM, Alaska Standard Time.

Here's the link:

Dick, this is Day 2, and I still haven't seen one of these big guys catch a fish!  It is addicting.

Hi Dick, I have seen a poster of a grizzly catching a spawning salmon in mid-air. It looked way too easy like the fish jumped into the waiting bear's mouth.  Everything loves fresh Pacific Salmon including me.

I've spent way too much time over the last several days watching these guys, and I've got to the point where I recognize individual bears. Their strategies vary, depending on their spot. The most successful one is the dark brown one that likes the spot in the water right in the foreground - he sticks his head underwater to watch for the fish moving back to make another run at the falls after a failed attempt. The guy who sits above the falls waiting for them to jump in his mouth is pretty good too.

Hey, Dick!  I included this post in Last Week's Favorites.  I finally saw one of the big guys chewing on a salmon!  And he didn't share!

How cool is this?  What I would like even better would be a ticket to get there....it'd be even better to see them in person!!!  Good words!

Just got back from Vegas and this kind of reminds me of the dealers waiting on the gamblers. I don't gamble so it was fun to watch.

How Cool is this?  I'd love to have one in my neighborhood, a well develped semi-urban area where people keep spotting/seeing foxes, a coyote and an eagle.

Omigosh, Dick!  I love this!  I started watching, and as one of the bears caught a couple I realized this live cam could become addictive, as I was rooting for the other one to finally catch a fish!  Thanks for sharing this great site!

Dick, unreal LIVE! My wife's cousin has lived in Alaska Anchorage for the past 25 years and she and hubby raised their 3 children there.  It's neat to see those bears scooping up the booty.

Hi Dick. Ok, soooo cool. I admit I fast forwarded through this lazy dazy Bear afternoon. I loved the fact that the three blonde baby-bears stayed obediently at the side of the water throughout the entire 39 minutes dip. Momma Bear got in and cavorted around, but those babies were soooo good to just hang out on the side. I wish some certain human babies I know were as obedient! LOL! Great Post - I suggested it!
