at first i thought the left image, at your link cam, was a TV. it actually looks identical to our family TV as a kid growing up. it sort of looks like a station dial too!

it's nice to see a cam like this on other rivers to compare to the salmon runs in alaska. i've seen reports that the world's salmon runs worldwide are dropping which pretty much means these bears and others won't have much of a future. even for me, it doesn't hit home until you actually see it live. a TV documentary is good but seeing it live... "what are these bears going to do if there's no salmon to eat?" what are the fisherpersons going to do?

in 1984, arbach took us on a trip to the Eel River California. there was snow on the ground near the banks, so it must have been around february / march. it was a nice sunny, warm day, the flow was about 600. on our way down, lot's of big salmon were running up stream and many had deteriorating skin. there are only a few events in my life i can remember exactly going back decades but this is one of them. it was incredible.

(and i had to jump out of my boat and defend my girlfriend against attacking bears with my paddle. or maybe it was a branch? she says it was a branch but the way i remember it it were attacking bears).

I think at this point at least in the PNW, Many salmon populations are on the rise, definitely since the 70's and 80's. I'm sure on the whole they're down from pre-development levels but progress is being made in some areas. Not sure about AK.

It takes time to fix the mistakes that were made... In some cases dams killed entire river systems, that's 10's to 100's of thousands of fish per system that no longer run. Some are slowly being restored others are definitely in need...All in all I think we're on the right track, just need to stay diligent...

i my area, western oregon (i am lee S the admin), i've heard on the radio that the salmon runs are way down so bad even commercial fishing has been restricted. that was a few years ago so don't know if better now. and like you say, maybe just a particular river that has a dam.

NOTE: in above bear eating salmon images, you can see this bear is younger, right? it seems the younger, skinnier bears have a pointy head while the bigger, seemingly older bears, have a full more rounded head. i wish we could chat with the Rangers!

rangers' having a chat at 5pm alaska time

they were on at about 4:15 and were taking questions (i guess as a test) and he announced the official chat is 5pm. he didn't say how viewers are asking questions. i went to their twitter and see this might be the method to ask them questions. he said they'll be at brook falls deck at 5pm.
