    lots of bears and lots of dense brush
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    AK PM has it right ..... If it's a Black Bear your after.

    If it's flood water the Bear can't fish so you'll have to hunt the jungle berry patches.

    Be prepared for rain and wet.

    If I were hunting bears in the fall down here I'd definately find the densest berry patches with bear trails on em and sit in a tree and wait, I guess you could sit around a riffle of a salmon stream too but by september the pinks and chums will be pretty well flushed out and the bears will be back on the berries finishing up their fat reserves, also shooting bears that eat berries increase the chance that the bear will be tastey
