Nondalton Fish Camp


In July, Georgia and I were privileged to visit a fish camp near Nondalton, Alaska, at the height of the salmon run. Here, on Six Mile Lake, adjacent to Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, we were able to see first-hand the entire subsistence fishing process: setting the net, picking the fish, cleaning and filleting, drying and finally smoking.  Special thanks to Dena’ina Athabascan elder Agnes Alexie, her husband Mike Borleske and their family for hosting us.
