TELEGRAPH COVE—Telegraph Cove Resort and Campground drew a crowd during its annual Craft Fair and Salmon Derby last weekend.

Saturday’s Craft Fair saw vendors lined up along the boardwalk, drawing crafters from local communities, as well as far-away visitors. Tables featured teas, knitwear, home-baked goodies, temporary tattoos, handmade jewelry and more.

A salmon barbecue on the boardwalk and hot corn on the cob were available

throughout the day.

The fishing derby began at dawn on Sunday, with weigh-ins taking place until

4 p.m. Proceeds from the event raised almost $4,000.00 for the Kokish Hatchery

Salmon Enhancement Project. It was followed by a barbecue and potluck in the evening.
