Tom and granddaughter fishing“I think the most notable thing about my area will be the town ‘Nome‘. The history of gold has put that name out there. My rivers are Niukluk River and Fish River other things of the area are the communities of White Mountain and Council.  We are known for having a grayling fishery that others would love to have.” -Tom Gray

The Bering Sea gets its name from a Danish Officer: Vitus Bering. He was sent by Russia to explore Alaska in the 1740’s. Russia continued to control the fur trade in Alaska for the next century. In 1867. Russia sold Alaska territory to the United States.
