Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dago Creek is an estuary of and small feeder stream to Ugashik Bay, located on the western flats of the central Alaska Peninsula in the U.S. state of Alaska, at 57 36 40 N 157 36 15 W / 57.61111 N 157.60417 W / 57.61111; -157.60417. The name derives from the numerous Sicilian fishermen who would anchor in the protected waters during closed fishing periods and collectively celebrate their heritage with plenty of food and wine. At first used in a pejorative way, the Sicilians embraced the terminology and the name stuck, becoming official when the area was first definitively mapped in 1943. The area is still used as a small boat harbor for the nearby village of Pilot Point, especially with the completion of a bulkhead-style dock and boat launch in 1990.show more
