What to Bring…
We want you to enjoy your trip and be as comfortable as possible. We recommend that you bring the following items with you for your stay. Since we use small aircraft and boats for travel, water resistant soft sided duffel bags are the best way to pack for your trip.
Remember, the lodge furnishes you waders, both Gore-tex & Neoprene. If we know your size ahead of time (please fill out the guest questionnaire), we will have it waiting for you in your locker (pictured above). We also supply all the rods, reels, flies & lures - this is ALL part of your package.
At the Lodge:
- Casual clothing
- Long sleeved shirts
- Warm socks
- Tennis or walking shoes
- Light weight (wind resistant) jacket
- Swimming suit for hot tub or sauna

- Water-proof day pack (the lodge provides a ‘Dry Bag’)
Most all of guests prefer the Gore-tex waders. They act as rain pants while in the boats and are by far the most comfortable waders. Plus they breath, keeping you from getting ‘clammy’. Neoprene chest waders are pretty good for the weather conditions in Alaska. Neoprene provides protection from cold water and add a measure of protection in case of a sudden dunking. We recommend a pair of fleece pants under your waders and on the cold days adding a pair of polypropilene/capilene long underwear. You should also bring a heavy pair of socks made of wool or polypropilene/capilene material. In Alaska, the saying goes, “cotton kills” (great for warm weather enviroments).
You will want to be prepared for the extra expense of a fishing license that can be purchased at the lodge. Please bring cash. 7 day non- resident fishing license $55. 7 day non - resident King Salmon tag $30 (only if fishing June/July)The only other expenses you will incur would be any items of a personal nature such as: Gratuities, gift shop items,or massage. Credit cards and personal checks are accepted for the gift shop and massage.Our guests often ask us for guidelines on gratuities. Gratuities are of very personal nature and dependent on your level of satisfaction. To give you a guideline, the average is 8-10% of your trip package cost - per person/per week. The gratuities are shared equally amongst the entire staff.We look forward to seeing you at the lodge very soon. Have a safe journey!
