The Taku River flows out of the Coastal Range in British Columbia to 100 miles northeast of Juneau, Alaska.
A world-class wilderness, the Taku River watershed contains some of the richest wildlife habitat in North America and is teeming with grizzlies, wolves, Stone’s sheep, moose, woodland caribou, migratory birds, and abundant populations of salmon. The Taku is southeast Alaska’s top salmon-producing river with nearly 2 million wild salmon returning to the river annually.
