ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Koyuk River in Northwest Alaska. The river originated in the central upland of Northwest Alaska's Seward Peninsula. It begins at an unnamed lake 140 miles northeast of Nome on the north side of the Bendeleben Mountains. The river flows for 150 miles and generally in easterly direction. Then, at the confluence with its East Fork, the river swings south, traversing tundra wetlands for 25 miles to the village of Koyuk on Norton Bay. It drains about 2,000 square miles.
