The Kuskokwim River (or "the Kusko" for short) is about 900 miles long, making it the second largest drainage in Alaska. Originating in the Kuskokwim Mountains north of the Alaska Range, the river flows southwest, emptying into the Bering Sea south of Bethel. The river provides habitat and spawning grounds for five species of salmon and supports the of the largest subsistence fisheries in Alaska.
