Footage of a young black bear fishing in a lake at Twin Lakes Campground in California.

The video, captured on June 18, shows the juvenile bear fishing a rainbow trout before it slowly walks towards the filmer.

"Apparently, the trout was already dead and maybe rotting, because the bear dropped it shortly after exiting the water," he wrote.

"The bear then sauntered in my direction, without realizing I was standing there. Once it spotted me, it was obvious the bear was more afraid of me than I was of it."

"The bear then scrambled into the brush to avoid coming in my direction, and proceeded to make its way through the campground," he added.

"I then stopped following it, because I did not want it to feel I was chasing it or harassing it, and I was afraid it might run in front of a moving vehicle if I scared it too badly."
