The Wolf River (Tlingit: Ghùch Hîni) is a river in Yukon, Canada.[1] It is in the Bering Sea drainage basin and is a left tributary of the Nisutlin River.

The river begins at an Wolf Lake, flows west and takes in its right tributary the Red River, then turns southwest and heads to its mouth at the Nisutlin River. The Nisutlin River empties via Teslin Lake, the Teslin River and the Yukon River to the Bering Sea.
