General Information

Description - Innoko National Wildlife Refuge is a roadless, relatively flat plain containing most of the Innoko River drainage and bordered on the west by the Yukon River. About 80 percent of the refuge is wetlands; there are innumerable small lakes, streams and bogs that are enriched by annual flooding associated with river runoff. The upland vegetation is a transition between the boreal forest of interior Alaska and shrub and tundra communities common in western and northern Alaska.

Wildfire plays a key role in maintaining diversity in the boreal forests. Moose, wolves, waterfowl and bears are common. Furbearers are abundant. Salmon, sheefish and northern pike abound in refuge streams and lakes. The refuge contains several abandoned towns, remnants of the gold rush era, but no occupied communities. Residents of fifteen villages hunt and fish on the Refuge for subsistence.

Recreation - A float trip on the Innoko River provides an excellent opportunity to view wildlife. Fishing is excellent for northern pike. Sport hunting for moose and black bear are other popular recreation pursuits in the refuge.

Location - The Innoko Refuge is about 300 miles northwest of Anchorage in the central Yukon River Valley. The refuge comprises most of the Innoko River basin and is composed of two separate sections that total 4.25 million acres.
