  • We came by the weir in hopes of seeing some salmon. We also had heard to come here to see bears. Well we saw salmon jumping the falls at the weir at least.  more »

  • This is a great place to view salmon. The park ranger at Exit glacier told us to come to this place to view salmon. In July this is the season for sock eye salmon. We followed the Google maps directions and it took us to just the right place. It's easy to miss the place but keep an eye for Bear creek weir sign. This sign is outside a small wood cabin. On the left side of that cabin there is a stream where salmon flows. It was such an experience to watch them - running against the water flow and jumping at the point where water level changes to get to the next level. Nature is truly magical. Make sure you do check if this is salmon season at this place before coming.
  • Cool spot to see salmon. The area is pretty small but if you want to see them jump upstream, this is a good spot to do it. They have little signs about the salmon but I would have loved to learn more
