ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Nuyakuk River in Alaska. This an excellent river for families or novices, with experience in portaging, who want a taste of western Alaska--especially those who enjoy fishing. The Nuyakuk River is a 43-mile tributary of the Nushagak River. The Nuyakuk begins at Tikchik Lake, the lowest of six large interconnected lakes. Deep and clear, with a moderate (3 to 4 miles per hour) current, the Nuyakuk has a gradient in the first 6 miles that averages 17 feet per mile. The upper river is flanked by a forest of black spruce and by wet bottomlands where tamarack grows. Paper birch and white spruce grow on better-drained sites.
