I know that this is not the forum for a fishing report but, if you are looking for bears to photograph check out the Russian near the ferry crossing. We fished last night until 11pm and witnessed one of the largest brown bears I have seen. It had two cubs and was busy harassing the fishermen on the highway side of the river. Unfortunately I left the camera at home so I missed out on the opportunity to photograph these amazing creatures. My dad and son caught their first salmon and had a great experience. I did get a call this morning from a buddy who said that his group had their limits bagged and were headed for home. They took the first ferry across the river at 6:am, had a brown bear cross the river near them and also had their limits by 8am. Just thought I would share.
