The grizzly bear viewing at Knight Inlet Lodge has remained fantastic throughout the month of September. Lately it has featured rather friendly interactions between grizzlies that we believe are unrelated. This unusual activity includes a young male hanging around with an older male that Researcher Mel Claphm believes is about 4 years older. This pair also tolerated Flo, a young female, fishing for salmon with them for over an hour. Flo who was a regular in 2010 has only just returned this season.
Chris & Helen Rose visited Knight Inlet Lodge in the middle of August this year and have been kind enough to share some of their photos with us. In my opinion they are some of the best we have seen in awhile. Thank you Chris & Helen.

Grizzly Bear Research in Glendale Cove
Knight Inlet Lodge is actively working to improve the salmon stocks on the Glendale River. One project towards this end is the fry monitoring program that we operate from late February until early May. The purpose of this project is to count pink salmon fry as they move down the river towards the ocean. We accomplish this by positioning a RST (rotary screw trap) in the river. This system allows us to catch a portion of the escaping fry without harming them in any way.

Knight Inlet Lodge is based in Glendale Cove on the coast of British Columbia. Canada and is considered by many to be the premier wilderness destination in the country.
It was a clear October (2009) morning as we departed Campbell River on Vancouver Island Air’s turbo Otter. We could see for miles in every direction and had amazing views of all the grand mountain peaks and fjords of the BC Coast as we flew into Knight Inlet Lodge in Glendale Cove. On the flight was our family of four and six other guests. As it was near the end of the season Knight Inlet Lodge was able to accommodate our family with our two children Zach 8 and Clem 6
