Wood Bison Management Plan for Lower Innoko/Yukon River

The Wood Bison Management Plan for Lower Innoko/Yukon River in Westcentral Alaska 2015-2020 (PDF 1,322 kB) was required before the 2015 release of wood bison into the lower Innoko/Yukon River area. A diverse group representing urban, rural, and Alaska Native interests, landowners, industry, wildlife conservationists, and State and Federal agencies developed the plan with the spirit of finding common solutions to reintroduction concerns.

Proper Release Techniques

Many Alaska streams have regulations stating that certain species of fish must be released unharmed. Careful release minimizes injury to the fish and maximizes its chances for survival after being caught. The practices detailed in Proper Release Techniques (PDF 2,167 kB) are some of the most important steps an angler can take to sustain Alaskan fisheries.
