Too Many Salmon Options!

Here is a quintessential shot from Katmai National Park: bear with jumping salmon at Brooks Falls. July is all about the falls here. In the pre-salmon spawn days, this fall line acts like a speed bump, and delays the salmon’s arrival at its spawning ground. This bottleneck also happens to be the spot where the bears are at their highest concentration.
