Attractions

Aniak attractions:
By July, the Aniak River runs clear enough along the town shoreline to catch all the different species of salmon that go up the Kuskokwim and Aniak Rivers; Chinook (King), Coho (Silver), Sockeye (Red), Chum (Dog), Pink (Humpback). Short boat trips to other small rivers and creeks can yield trout; Rainbow, Brook, Dolly Varden, Arctic Char. Shee fish are a treat for the sports fisherperson, similar to a large whitefish - having large scales and a small mouth.

Aniak hosts an annual Interior Rivers State Fair, usually the second weekend of August, showcasing produce and fowl and other small animals raised locally. It includes a community potlatch featuring local produce and dishes (ever had akutaq?) and a spectacular fireworks display Saturday night.

Several fishing and hunting guide outfits and fly-out charter operators are based in Aniak.

We are within an hour's boat ride to several berry-picking sites.

During the winter, snowmachines can take us miles in any direction. Trapping and caribou hunting are major activities during snowmachine season, as well as ice-fishing.

Spring breakup (of river ice) is a major attraction - everyone wants to be on that dike when the ice first moves. Some floods have allowed one to go shopping with a boat!

Aniak has a paved runway. Aniak is a hub for air traffic, with 6 small aircraft airlines.
