Speechless Sunday: Fishing the Flathead River

Bear Print

Bear Track

I wrote a blog post earlier this week about our fishing trip with one of our friends /clients on the Flathead River near Paradise, Montana. While he was out, he took the following photos of Bear prints along the river - apparently we weren't the only one fishing on the Flathead River!

Monica: Thankfully Kevin and his friends were not fishing the river at the same time the bear was. I had a close encounter with a bear while fishing in Alaska. What a memory.

Hi Kathleen - you're right on that! Fortunately we don't have many Grizzly Bears in this area so it was likely a Black Bear which aren't too bad - unless they have a cub of course.

If that was me and I saw those prints I would not be fishing at that river for very long.

Pat and I Net - thanks for your comments :) We actually get used to seeing this kind of thing I guess - and look forward to it!

I would let the bear win -- throw him a fish and run like heck!!! Neat shots of the pawprints!

Now that's a big bear. We see black bears here, but they're much smaller.

Marney - LOL I think we would let the bear win too.

Hi Lee and Carol - we do have some large bears here :)

Thankfully they weren't fishing at the same time, in the same place!

Kevin and Monica,

Judging from the impression made by that bear, he is no lightweight. Probably better just to see the tracks. :)

Debi - I agree, we would give up the fishing spot to that bear for sure.

Steve - I think you're right, this was a big bear and not one we'd like to meet face-to-face :)
