When you're in this neck of the woods, a visit to the 1.6 million acre Wood-Tikchik State Park, the nation's largest, must be part of your plans. This remote wilderness takes the sporting life to new levels: abundant fishing, wildlife and more than enough space to allow uninterrupted time to be one with nature.
Served by air taxis from Dillingham, Togiak National Wildlife Refuge preserves Mother Nature's rugged beauty as it was more than 2,000 years ago. What's the reward for spirited adventurers who trek to the refuge? Unadulterated landscape, a bounty of wildlife, not to mention ample opportunity to test your gumption.
As winter yields to spring in the Alaska bush country, anglers swarm the Dillingham area to fish for salmon, rainbow trout, and more in the Nushagak and Wood rivers. In the summer, experience Bristol Bay's legendary salmon runs aboard a commercial fishing vessel.
