Brown bears fighting for the best salmon fishing spot in Katmai National Park.

During a trip in mid September to Katmai National Park my wife & I watched two "junior" brown bears via for the best fishing position below the falls while Otis, a 1,500 lb. mature male casually watched the drama unfold from his "office" along the bank. We watched from the safety of the observation platform.
