Fishing Resorts of South Whidbey, Part I

Do you remember when fishing resorts dotted the coastline of South Whidbey?

Perhaps your family came over for a week in the summertime. Or perhaps a relative operated one of these family-run resorts.

South Whidbey Historical Society President Bill Haroldson recounts this bygone chapter of South Whidbey’s history in part one of a two-part series on the era of South Whidbey’s fishing resorts. (Part two will focus on individual resorts.)

If you have a memory or photo you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.

You can also purchase Bill’s book about these fishing resorts at the South Whidbey Historical Museum, now open weekends from 1 to 4 p.m. All sales benefit the nonprofit South Whidbey Historical Society.
