Access to Innoko National Wildlife Refuge from McGrath, Alaska, is by charter aircraft only because there are no roads to or within the refuge. The refuge features numerous rivers, sloughs, ponds and lakes. The largest river is the Yukon River, which forms the refuge's western boundary. The refuge includes a large portion of the upper Innoko River basin. Fishing season is open year-round, except for some salmon. There is excellent northern pike fishing. Other species include king, silver, pink and chum salmon, Dolly Varden, inconnu, Arctic grayling, northern pike, burbot and several species of whitefish.
