Alaska touts one of the highest populations of bears in the world. Over 100,000 Black Bears and over 30,000 Brown Bears make Alaska their home. With those kinds of numbers, anywhere you go in Alaska, you’re likely to see one of these magnificent animals. Whether you’ve yet to witness it for yourself, odds are you recognize the iconic image of an Alaskan brown bear positioned on the edge of a waterfall in anticipation of catching an airborne salmon attempting to ascend the falls. If you haven’t ever seen it live, go to explore.org and check out their live cameras. They even have a fish camera too!
At Rapids Camp Lodge, we really like bears and watching them do what they do. One of the luxuries of a Fly-Out Lodge in Bristol Bay, besides the wild landscapes, tundra, lakes, and mountains, are close-up views of these awesome animals. If you’re fishing in Bristol Bay, you’ll see one. If you want just to watch them without the fishing, we can do that too by flying you out to Brooks Falls, in Katmai National Park.
Bristol Bay has no shortage of these magnificent animals. If you like seeing bears in the wild, you’ll enjoy Rapids Camp Lodge. Fly-outs, Fishing, and Bears.
