Getting There

Take a plane or boat in from Chignik.


The Alec River is a nice clear river with beautiful mountain scenery of the Aleutian Range. It gets too shallow for boating in once it splits off into Cathedral, Broad, Conglomerate, Boulevard creeks.

As for fishing in Alec River there are Dolly Varden, and Sockeye salmon.

reported as "Alee" in 1923 by R. H. Sargent, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS); probably represents a native name change to its present spelling by a typographical error.
