Recreation

Anglers will find several creeks flowing into the bay. In mid-July, pink salmon spawn in most of the little

creeks, and coho arrive in August. Some of the lakes in the area have good-sized cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden. Fishing for halibut and

rockfish in the nearby ocean waters is accessible with a boat.

Hunters can take advantage of a long hunting season on the island. Sitka black-tailed deer can be challenging

to hunt, but worth traversing the terrain.
