OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly It has been a few years since my husband Frank and I anchored on the "Twinkle" in Sarkar Cove, which indents the eastern side of El Capitan Passage, a protected waterway on the western coast of Prince of Wales Island. When we were there we saw a number of subsistence fishermen with nets fishing at the mouth of Sarkar Creek, sometimes called the Sarkar River. Knowing what has happened at sites such as this makes it more meaningful as we travel.
