    Forgot to ask since I will be fishing by myself......what are the chances I will encounter a bear and do you carry bear spray??

    I have been fishing in the park for about a year or so...I've never seen a bear...but it's always in the back of mind and I always try to keep a good handle on my surroundings. I personally would not be too concerned about an encounter. Typically they are going to be more scared of you. That being said, it's not a bad idea to pick up a can of bear spray if you can.
