Chignik is a fishing village on the Alaskan Peninsula and home for just under 100 year-round inhabitants. Most of the houses in the community are running along a local stream and neighborhood kids can be seen riding their bicycles back and forth on its length. In the summer months the population doubles, as the fishing gets better and the town supports a couple of fish-processing plants. Chignik is a remote outpost at the doorstep of the Aleutian Island chain and offers up a true taste of Alaskan outback life. A few small waterfalls cascade down the surrounding mountains, and eagles can be seen as Hump Salmon (also called Pink Salmon when out in the ocean) swim up the river to spawn.
