We checked out this area several times over a rainy week and saw lots of fishermen but no wildlife, except for salmon. The brush along the trails was pretty high so the sightlines wouldn't have felt very safe if there had been fewer people.

Great area to view the magnificent Kodiak brown bear. Check Facebook and tide schedule to find out best times to go. Remember bear safety and don't scare them away so others can enjoy. Leave your dog at home (some are dumb enough to bring theirs).

On or first night in Kodiak we drove to Sargent Creek and immediately spotted a brown bear meandering along the shore looking for food. The bear stayed for a long time and attracted quite an audience. Just great!

We brought our own poles and fished for salmon. Best time fishing I have had. I enjoyed more than deep sea fishing but I get sea sick.

Paying $700 for a commercial bear-viewing trip was not in our budget so we asked the locals in Kodiak where we could see wild Kodiak brown bears. They pointed us to a place 10 miles southwest of town on Rezanof Dr W. Where Sargent Creek...More
