747 Fishing at the Falls in the Morning:

When the night of June 24th changed over to the first minutes of June 25th, 747 was still fishing at the falls.  At some point in the very early morning hours of June 25th, 747 appears to have departed the falls.....but by 04:32 he was back to fishing in the jacuzzi.

LaniH's June 25, 2018 Daily Update Summary:

On June 26, 2018 at 02:46 LaniH shared her June 25, 2018 daily update summary:

"Good Morning Bear Peeps We had a lot of bear activity yesterday. First thing in the Morning 747 was at the falls in the J and far pool, he left and came back a couple different times throughout the morning. (video by SteveCA). 435 Holly and cubs are seen walking up spit road out to the spit where they cubs play (video by BrendaD).

747 is back at the falls later in the afternoon he catches quite a few salmon in the J and eats them on the island. We see him notice someone crossing the lip of the falls, its 151 Walker and 747 climbs the fish ladder and chases 151 all the way across the top of the falls and down toward the riffles along the upper bank (video by BrendaD).

51 Diver Jr shows up from the top of the falls and goes to the far pool to fish (video by Ratna). 435 Holly and cubs are seen briefly on the LR near the bridge (gif by PKilborn). 409 Beadnose is up at the falls and down to the riffles and back again. She is pursued by 51 Diver Jr but loses him and comes back to the riffles. A bit later she is approached in the riffles by 151 Walker and she gives him a big NO (video by SteveCA).

747 Catches some more salmon in the J and then heads up the far path (video by Ratna). Bear is seen napping on the spit and then walks down spit road, believe to be 274 Overflow. Up at the falls an unknown bear is seen on the island (video by Ranta), then near the J. He heads over to the far path and has a little meet and greet with 747. (Video by BrendaD)

274 Overflow is seen heading up to the falls from the riffles and meets 409 Beadnose there, they both go to the falls.Beadnose heads to the lip video of Beadnose on the by BrendaD, video of 274 at the falls by SteveCA.747 is back at the falls and is in the J, he has a little meet and greet with an eagle near the island (video by SteveCA).
