It’s no secret that this river is arguably one of the best fishing rivers in the world.  The Togiak National Wildlife Refuge closely limits the use of  this river to keep it’s wild and remote experience.  Only a select number of permits are given to commercial outfitters, as well as staggered  departure dates. This is the most highly regulated fishing river in Alaska.  You won’t see very many people here.

July through Mid September is prime fishing for this river.

You may not find a better all around  stream in all the world.


The Kanektok River, is crystal a clear river. It keeps a fisherman challenged with it’s changing river channels and runs.  Ouzel has many departure dates for this river and has over 25 year experience on the Kanektok.

 You won’t be disappointed with the fishing on this river. Some say if there is a river in heaven this might be the “Chosen River”.  You might consider this fly fishing heaven.

The Kanektok is one beautiful river and perhaps the best fishing river in Alaska!

The river provides excellent spawning habitat for the huge runs of all five species of salmon and Arctic Char, as well as cover for trophy size rainbow trout. It is common for clients to catch all five species of salmon , as well as Arctic Char, rainbow, and grayling all in one trip in July. August and September has excellent Silver Salmon fishing.
