Naknek & South Naknek

August 2001 - The commercial fishing season was over around the Bay that summer. From this spot in Naknek you have a good view of South Naknek across the river. Many of the larger buildings that can be seen in this picture are canneries. If you buy Bristol Bay canned salmon, there is a good chance it got processed on the Naknek-Kvichak somewhere.

My grandmother Emma was born at a cannery down the Naknek River (seen here), around the bend and up the Kvichak a little ways. It is along the direction and it's remnants can still be seen I think as one flies to Dillingham.
