Prince of Wales Island Wildlife Viewing
Cable Creek Fishpass
Watch salmon spawn at the Cable Creek Fishpass between late July and the end of August. The wheelchair accessible viewing platform at the end of a short boardwalk is a good place to stand and look for wildlife. Black bears gorge themselves on protein-rich salmon, an essential part of their yearly diet. Scan for river otters chasing the salmon upstream, and look upwards for a bald eagle.
