ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Alagnak and Nonvianuk rivers in Alaska. The Alagnak, known locally as the Branch River, originates in Kukaklek Lake and flows west-southwest 74 miles before entering the Kvichak River and Kvichak Bay. The river has several distinctly different sections, both in difficulty and scenery. The view from the river is open and unobstructed for 2 to 4 miles out over low ridgelines paralleling the river. Hiking in this area is good. The Nonvianuk River is an 11-mile tributary of the Alagnak which flows out of Nonvianuk Lake. The mouth of Nonvianuk Lake is a popular fishing spot and many float trips begin here for this reason. The Nonvianuk/Alagnak is the most popular float route in the Bristol Bay region because it is relatively easy and has good fishing for several species of fish.
