Lowe Inlet July 8,9 2010

Lowe Inlet July 8,9 2010

At the head of Lowe inlet is a waterfall coming form Lowe Lake. You can take your dingy up close to the falls and hold in the current. That afternoon I was cruising around when I spotted a large Grizzly bear heading for the falls & the photos tell the story. I called the rest of the gang and they come over to see him. He paid no attention to us and sat there waiting for a salmon to jump into his claws. The water was boiling with salmon at the base of the falls but none were trying to go up the falls. This is my first encounter with a Grizzly and I must say he was impressive in size and could move like a cat over the slippery rocks. The size of the paws and claws are also very impressive! He sat there for over an hour yawing and waiting and we finally went back to the boat. The next morning i got a similar show from a large Black Bear but he was spooked by my presence and after setting up for fishing at the base of the falls he scrambled up a large rock and disappeared into the dense woods.We set some prawn pots and had very good success with several pulls during our two day stay.
