Finally, the salmon are swimming and jumping going upstream at Brooks River, Katmai National Park, Alaska and the brown bears are fishing.

There are several viewing venues, including an underwater camera just below the falls.

The bears use a variety of fishing techniques which are summarized in this FAQ (see Item 5. What are the different fishing styles bears use at Brooks River?) which is quite useful whether you are new to watching or have been there before.

In addition, there are special presentations you can watch to learn more and a comments section. Some of the regular watchers who have been doing this for years sometimes provide interesting commentary.
