Togiak River is a stream, 48-mile (77 km) long, in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Alaska. It begins at Togiak Lake in the Togiak Wilderness and flows southwest to Togiak Bay, 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Togiak.
The Togiak is a popular and productive river for sport fishing, producing very good catches of all five species of Pacific salmon. Dolly Varden char and rainbow trout are also present, and sport fishing is a substantial contributor to the local economy.
The river itself is very scenic, especially in the upper wilderness area, flanked by hills and distant mountains. Float trips are becoming increasingly popular, with excellent chances of observing wildlife including brown bears, caribou, moose, eagles and beaver.
