Alaska National Wildlife Refuges: Togiak Nat'l Wildlife Refuge

Togiak is between Kuskokwim and Bristol bays in southwestern Alaska. The topography includes mountain crags, fast-flowing rivers, deep lakes, marshy lowlands, ponds, estuaries, coastal lagoons, and sea cliffs. The broad glacial valleys of the Ahklun Mountain range cut the tundra uplands and opens onto a coastal plain. The Ahklun Mountains encompass 80 percent of the refuge. Togiak is a breeding and resting area for waterfowl and shorebirds returning from wintering areas in Russia, Japan, Mexico, South America, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. Numerous seabirds inhabit the off-shore waters and cliffs near Capes Newenham and Peirce during the summer. Spotted seals, walrus and seven species of whales use the off-shore waters. The refuge provides more than 1,500 miles of streams and rivers of spawning habitat for salmon. Visitor Use Some of the finest salmon and trout sport fishing waters in Alaska are on Togiak. The coastal portion of the refuge provides excellent opportunity for photography and wildlife observation. River rafting is popular on several refuge rivers. Commercial guides are available for sport fishing, brown bear hunting, and river rafting. For information contact: Refuge Manager - (907)842-1063 Togiak National Wildlife Refuge P.O.
