August is when the Silver Salmon are really plentiful with an average weight of fifteen pounds. Besides hunting and fishing, this area is a photographer's dream with spectacular scenery all around and many opportunities to spot wildlife. Great boating and kayaking adventures await you with miles of shoreline and many coves to explore. Though this parcel is remote and untouched, it is easily accessible by boat or seaplane. The Port Bailey Seaplane Base is just across Dry Spruce Bay from the island, and the Alaska State Ferry arrives regularly in nearby Port Lyons.The historic owner of this estate on Dry Spruce Island was Dora Naughton Zehe. She was born in the Native Village of Afognak, a descendant of the original Alutiiq people of this island located 3 miles offshore from Kodiak Island. In the 1940s Dora lived on Dry Spruce Island while working at the Port Bailey Cannery. She would pilot her small skiff back and forth to work. She enjoyed a subsistence lifestyle of fishing, clamming, hunting, gathering berries and raising mink.
