In February, a draft supplemental environmental impact statement is due on a massive resort proposed on Hood Canal. The proposed $300 million Pleasant Harbor Marina and Golf Resort in Brinnon has received praise from a North Olympic Peninsula tourism industry leader, who said the economic benefits of the 257-acre resort on Hood Canal would stretch across Clallam and Jefferson counties.
The ambitious Hood Canal project has also garnered opposition from The Brinnon Group, who say it is too large for a small, rural community.Share this: Twitter | FacebookContinue Reading →
According to Rich Childers of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, 2011 appears to be a record year for the amount of crabs harvested by recreational crabbers in Puget Sound. An estimated 2.1 million pounds of crabs were taken in the summer season from July 1 to Labor Day, with additional harvest coming during the fall and winter.
Lots of people enjoyed a high rate of catch this year, Childers said. “We are seeing an abundance of crab, phenomenally high in some of the Puget Sound marine areas,” he said. “We’re seeing the same thing with shrimp. Something in the environment is favoring the survival of Dungeness crabs from larvae to adult.”Share this: Twitter | FacebookContinue Reading →

I just wanted to send out a quick blog from Hood Canal and the Olympic Peninsula waterfront to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. My Christmas wish is for peace and happiness and to thank everyone for a very successful 2011. It has been terrific and we all should expect a fabulous 2012 – well, until next December when the world comes to an end (smile). Until then campers, make the best of it and enjoy every moment of your holiday. This holiday will never happen again – don’t miss it.Share this: Twitter | FacebookContinue Reading →
