Ports Of Call | Craig, Alaska | The Key To The Coast


IMG_4287

The history of Craig, Alaska is tied closely to commercial fishing and logging.  Over the years, Craig has remained a fairly quaint community, with a population of about 1500 residents.  The true treasure of Craig is in the pristine location.  Numerous commercial fishermen flood the region for close access to the west coast of Prince Of Wales Island and the rich ocean waters that surround the neighboring islands.  Seiners and trollers cherish the “ocean fresh” fish that swarm along the coastal regions.  Sport fishermen also relish the quick access to some of the best King salmon fishing in Alaska.  Of course, Craig sounds like just another sleepy fishing town in Southeast Alaska, but there is a more mysterious side.  Stay tuned for an upcoming Strange Tales post in honor of Halloween that highlights some of the mystery surrounding this simple little town.
