Wood-Tikchik State Park was created for the purpose of protecting the area's fish and wildlife breeding and to support continued subsistence and recreational activities. This image shows the Agulowak River, which flows through the park for 4.5-miles from Lake Nerka to Lake Aleknagik. About 200,000 sockeye salmon spawn here and an additional 1.2 million salmon pass through to spawn in other waters in the park.
