Alagnak Wild River

Superintendent Name: 
Doug Neighbor

The headwaters of the Alagnak Wild River lie within the rugged Aleutian Range of neighboring Katmai National Park & Preserve. Every year, this wild and scenic river changes its course and branches anew, for which reason its sometimes called the “Branch River.” The Alagnak’s extraordinary rainbow trout, char, grayling, and abundant salmon has helped it become one of the most popular fishing destinations in all of southwest Alaska. Located 290 miles southwest of Anchorage, AK, the Alagnak traverses the beautiful Alaska Peninsula, providing an unparalleled opportunity to experience the unique wilderness, wildlife, and cultural heritage of southwest Alaska.
