Spring Eagles At Clover Pass Resort

Each year in late spring and early summer, hundreds of eagles migrate back to Ketchikan to nest and eat the salmon returning to local rivers. They feast on herring and needle fish early in the year and then move to the rivers to eat king, chum, silver, pink, and sockeye that are caught unaware in shallow river water. This eagle decided that a fisherman’s upcoming crabbing excursion was less important than the eagle’s lunch — he raided the bait bucket while the fisherman finished loading the pots.
