Iliamna is small community located in Lake and Peninsula Boroughs in southwest Alaska. As of the 2010 census, the population was 109 residents. The town sits on the northwest side of Iliamna Lake, which is at the north end of the Alaska Peninsula between Kvichak Bay and Cook Inlet. Iliamna Lake is the largest lake in the state of Alaska and the 8th largest in North America. It covers 1,000 square miles and is 77 miles long and up to 22 miles wide. The waters of Iliamna Lake drain through the Kvichak River into Bristol Bay. The village of Iliamna was originally at the point where the Iliamna River flows into the lake and it was situated about 65 miles from present-day Iliamna. The town moved to its' present day site in 1935. The site of the old village is called "Old Iliamna." The town's economy depends on fishing and hunting and sport fishing lodges. The first sport fishing lodge in Iliamna was built in the 1930s and many more were built in later years. Presently, many multi-national mining companies are looking at an area northwest of Iliamna as a possible site for one of North America's largest gold, copper, molybdenum mines. Studies conducted in the area show the majority of Alaskans are opposed to the development.

Iliamna Weather & Climate

Southwestern Alaska's climate is greatly influenced by the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. The climate is subarctic oceanic in the southwest and continental subarctic further north. Considering how far north this area is, the temperature is somewhat moderate. The precipitation varies widely. For instance; the northern side of the Seward Peninsula receives less than 10 inches per year (making it technically a desert region,) while some other locations average around 100 inches. Summers are short and mild, winters are long and cold. There are frequent, strong winds, especially in the winter. The latitude in this region causes summer days to be very long and winter days to be very short.
