My son and I rode bikes into the falls yesterdy and fished a few hundred yards downstream of the marker. We hooked and lost a lot of fish due to the fast water at our spot and lack of a net (taking one next time). We walked back up to the 600 yard marker and cleaned our fish. We were just about to head out around 10:30 pm when someone shouted "bear, bear, bear!" I looked up and said something like "Whoa, that's close!" The sow and cub stayed for 10-15 minutes fishing and put on a show for the dozen or so people standing around. Quite an incredible way to end the evening but I don't care to ever be any closer.
