I always thought that it's easy for bear to catch a salmon, especially when the whole river was filled with salmon. Turned out it's not the case. For every 10 slam, the bear may only catch 1 or 2 salmon if he/she's lucky. Here's a lucky one. We tried to keep ourselves low by kneeling down in the water, so that it appeared we were almost below the bear's eye level. This usually generates better viewing experience.
