I remember the bear population being estimated at 500 bears back in the 80's.I recently read a report where the population is around 5,000 bears.

I remember fishing about a hundred days a year from 91 to 95 and rarely seeing bears.Now I see bears or bear sign almost every time I fish.I do not stay at designated sites anymore because the bears around the campsites don't run when they see me.The bears I see on the little creeks I fish usually run away or amble behind an obstacle and vanish like a ghost as soon as the see or smell me.I think the ones near the camps equate humans with food especially around horse camps.


I hope the lightning bugs give you a show turk870
