ABSTRACT
The article features the Wood River Lakes System in Alaska. This is an excellent trip for intermediate boaters or for families who want to sample a mountain and water environment in western Alaska--especially those who enjoy fishing. Bordered by the Nushagak lowlands on the east and the Wood River Mountains to the west and north, the interconnecting lake system consists of five large lakes and a few small lakes that are connected by short, swift, boulder-strewn streams. The lake system encompasses several terrain and vegetative zones. Jagged peaks, high alpine valleys, and deep V-shaped inlets give the lake's western arms a fjordlike appearance. White spruce, birch, willow, and alder cover the hills and mountains up to the 900-foot elevation.
