Alaska Trip 2005 - jfriend
At the base of the rapids, there were hundreds of Sockeye salmon resting, getting their energy up for the trek up the waterfalls.  Fishing is prohibited in this area because the salmon all hang out here before they get up the falls and it would be too easy to catch them.  This is, apparently, a popular fishing hole for the bears, but we didn't see them in the middle of the day when we were there.
