The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish recently purchased a public access site along the Lower Situk River about 10 miles southeast of Yakutat. The purchase was funded through the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Program and Fish and Game funds which secures public access to the Lower Situk River.

The parcel is approximately 0.8 acres in size and includes a gravel road, parking area, boat launch, and vault latrine. The site is located where the Lost River Road terminates at the Situk River. The parcel was formerly a portion of the Setuk Harry Native Allotment.

The State would like to express appreciation to the owners of the adjoining allotment, the heirs of Maggie John, for allowing public access to the Situk River during the land acquisition. As a result of the new river access, the public is reminded to now turn right at the “Strawberry Point” sign near the end of the Lost River Road to continue on to the Situk River Landing.
