Water is low and very clear. First light is the key to enticing a bite. Caught two nice springs and a coho on boraxed natural spring roe, and white and peach wool with single egg spring roe bags. Lots of bears out and about. Saw one last week, yesterday and heard of 3 seen the day before.

I was out on the Vedder on the 26th, down below Alison pool. Saw one older spring landed and a few jumping, that was all.

Has anyone seen any Chum? Usually they're all over the river by now a people are complaining about catching them. It's disturbing not to see or hear of any at all.

What are you talking about... this is still early for chum. Normally they start to show up in mid october in bigger numbers. I'm actually surprised at how many are around right now, at least most of them are in very good shape :thumbup: Try fishing the lower... water is low so I wouldn't expect nearly as many fish up that high yet :peace:

ya you might love that pic G but what about when it decides to cross to your side :eek:
that would be fricky! however, black bears are not grizzly bears, you can easily walk away from them if you don't scare them. a couple of times last year I saw bears on the other side of the river (very deep and fast water though), they didn't move, I didn't move, it was fine. but he left, and I left too.
Anyway, nice photo again, it is important to show people that it is real and very likely to find bear at the river now looking for food.

Bears are individuals, and are unpredictable in their behaviour. I too have encountered bears many times, and have yet to have any problems with them, however to say that they are "nothing", is to ignore the very real possibility that they will become "something" to be reckoned with. Every year, there are thousands of human-bear interactions, and only a tiny handful of harmful encounters (most involving black bears, not grizzlies), but that small number of disastrous events make me fully aware of the potential danger of every encounter. Perhaps it is a function of my age and experience, but I am not one to simply ignore the fact that there is a bear near me. I am comfortable enough around them to not react with panic or fear, but if I do encounter a bear, I respectfully grant the territory to the bear and I move on. Although the risk is minuscule, the prospect of that 300 pound plus animal being the one unpredictable one is not worth it to me. It is a policy that has served me (and bears) well for many, many years. :2cents: By the way, nice pics and report Eagleye. Looks like an overall great day. :thumbup:
