Brooks Falls is located on the river of the same name in the Katmai National Park and Reserve in the state of Alaska, USA. This is the ideal salmon hunting location for grizzly bears.

 
 
Brooks is a low waterfall with a height of about 1.8 meters so salmon can easily overcome the waterfall to enter the Brooks River. However, this is also the reason why they become prey for grizzly bears.

From mid-July to early September, salmon begin to cross the falls to enter Brooks Lake – which is about 2.4 km from the falls – to spawn. They become potential prey for grizzly bears.

The amount of nutrients grizzly bears accumulate during the spawning period is equivalent to the amount of nutrients they accumulate for the rest of the year.

At the end of August, when the spawning season was nearing its end, the salmon began to die. The grizzly bears turned to find dead fish in the calm waters of the lower Brooks River.
