The bears of Hyder, Alaska - Grizzlies and black bears are neighbours on the north coast scene

With all the salmon runs in the area fishing is also a big draw. Meziadin Lake just outside of town plays host to amazing fishing and also has one of the highest concentrations of grizzlies in Canada. If lakes aren’t for you a quick trip down to the town dock can offer up an easy Dungeness Crab dinner after an hour or two. You might like a trip down the Portland Canal, the fourth longest fjord in the world, where you could also catch some halibut and if you’re lucky a king crab.

Summer or winter a trip north to Stewart, B.C. and Hyder, Alaska is definitely one to remember. Look up Dave and Christy at Stewart Mountain Lodge at www.stewartmountainlodge.com.
