Frequently Asked Questions About Accessing TKC Land for Personal Recreational Use:
Do I need a permit to cross TKC land to access fishing?
Yes, a TKC permit is needed for non-shareholders. TKC offers a “Recreational Use permit” for uses such as overnight camping and crossing TKC land to access sport fishing.
Can I fish on the gravel bar beside the river without a TKC permit?
Yes, fishing is allowed on the gravel bar without a TKC permit. The submerged land under the river and up to the “high water mark” is owned by the State of Alaska and is open to the public.
What is the “high water mark” and where is that mark located?
Generally, the high water mark is past the river gravel and grasses where vegetation such as Willows start. Land past the high water mark is the beginning of the TKC property boundary. Access beyond the high water mark requires a permit for non-shareholders.

No, this TKC permit covers the applicant and his or her immediate family, so long as they are traveling together.

Can I get a sport fishing license from TKC?
No, TKC does not provide sport fishing or hunting licenses. Fishing and hunting licenses are issued from the State of Alaska.
