ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the Situk River in Southeast Alaska. The Situk River flows southwesterly for 19 miles beginning in Situk Lake and ending in the Gulf of Alaska. It is a small, braided, clearwater river containing many tributaries and cross-channels characteristic of streams flowing across glacial outwash deposits. The view of the river itself is largely restricted to the narrow river corridor, due to dense forests and alder thickets along the banks. There is an estuary with saltwater beaches and breaking surf at the mouth of the Situk.
