CREEK STREET WILDLIFE ART POSTER
Our gallery, the Soho Coho, is situated below the small waterfalls on Ketchikan’s notorious Creek Street, right by the foot bridge. We’ve been doing business there since 1992 between the Good Fortune Chinese restaurant and the Eagles Club. Back in the day the area was known for its rowdy nightlife and bawdy house of “ill repute”.
Four species of salmon run up the creek (humpies, dogs, kings and silvers) along with steelhead (technically a salmon as well). Many a creature feed on the salmon when they make their spawning run in late summer. You can easily spot harbor seals, kingfishers, eagles, ravens and great blue herons. Once in a blue moon you might be lucky enough to see a black bear or a river otter working the shore.
And yes, that’s Charles Darwin dining in the window and a troll lurking under the bridge.
