Title: bear fishing on the Russian River with tourists
Description: While watching fisherman on the Russian River, I noticed this young brown bear observing a raft full of tourists as they drifted by him. There were also many anglers on the river that day who quickly left when they saw him. The bear became enamored with the paper products left behind on the beach (as fisherman left the area) and began playing with them before running off into the woods behind him.
