Alaska Brooks River Brown Bear and Salmon Live Cam

Unfortunately I cannot embed this live cam but click HERE to go to the site which has the cam running. It’s great! I’m sitting here watching salmon trying to jump up and through the falls and there are nine brown bears that I can see in the camera’s view.

Every year over a hundred Brown Bears descend on a mile long stretch of Brooks River to feast on the largest Sockeye Salmon run in the world.

Location: Katmai National Park & Preserve, AK
Best viewing hours: 6:30am – 11:30pm
Time zone: Alaska Standard Time

The first picture below is the screen shot from what I am viewing now. The rest are photos from website. There is someone monitoring the camera so it will move and other views are seen. Right now, the camera changed and zoomed in on a bear having a salmon snack.

  1. I don’t know which fascinates me more, the salmon returning so many miles upstream every year, jumping falls and going up fish ladders to get there, or the bears who are smart enough to sit out there in the river waiting for them and quick enough to catch ’em.

  2. I watched this for over 45 minutes last night, but I was too tired to comment. But this is just fascinating, because it’s live and actually happening, and I was thrilled last night when I got to see two of the bears get into a brief fight for a prime fishing spot, and also when one of the bears on top of the falls grabbed a leaping salmon right out of the air and into his mouth. I started watching at about 11:30 PM Alaskan time, and like you, at one point I saw eight bears all fishing.

    This is the most impressive live web cam I’ve ever seen, and I’m absolutely serious when I say that. Thanks once again for sharing the rare and amazing with us, Michelle.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
