ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Goodnews River in Alaska. The Goodnews is an easy river with beautiful scenery and wonderful fishing. Beginning at a small lake in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, the river flows about 15 miles to Goodnews Lake. Goodnews stays in the emerald-green, tundra-covered mountains for much of its length. The lower river has a very slow or nonexistent current due to the tidal influence of Goodnews Bay. Upriver winds can also make downriver travel more difficult. The river was one of several travel and trade routes used by Native people going between the Kuskokwim River and the Nushagak River.
