This property provides about ¾ miles of river frontage on the world famous Ugashik River, well known for it’s rich Salmon fishery; be it for Kings, Reds, Silvers or…. and of course, Ugashik Lake is home to some of the largest Arctic Grayling found in Alaska.
For you hunters, well, it can hardly get any better, as there is many a trophy Brown Bear or Moose coming from this area.
This would be a great purchase for a group of guys who enjoy like wise interests, as it is almost impossible to find such a large parcel with that much river frontage in that area.
Ugashik Village is served by commercial air service out of King Salmon, so you do not need to be a pilot to enjoy the area, as one can do plenty of exploring by boat.
The Price for this “Little Jewel” is mere $225,000.-
And should you be a contractor doing any improvements on the runway or roads in Ugashik, the seller mentioned he has some of the “Best” gravel on his property.
(The seller provided us with an eloquent write up about the area, see below)
The property is located adjacent to Ugashik Village. Ugashik Village is located approximately 15 miles upriver from Ugashik Bay, along the banks of the Ugashik River.

Ugashik Village is also accessible by riverboat from Ugashik Bay (Pilot Point) and other various towns and villages along Bristol Bay.
The Ugashik River is fed from the Ugashik Lakes consisting of the Lower Ugashik Lake and the Upper Ugashik Lake. The "Second Rapids" connects the Lower Lake to the Upper Lake. The "First Rapids" connects the Lower Lake to the Ugashik River. These set of rapids and adjacent areas provide excellent sportfishing for Trout, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling, and Silver Salmon.
A tributary of the Ugashik River called King Salmon River provides the sportflsherman with excellent King Salmon fishing.
