Detailed Description

Over a dozen exclusive fly-out trips can be tailored to your liking, with multiple fish species being targeted. Party sizes from four to six people allow for a tranquil experience that makes fishing remote Alaska so special.

You’ll get to Anchorage, on your own. A few blocks from the Anchorage terminal is the bush plane service that will fly you directly to the lodge. The cost of roundtrip airfare from Anchorage to the lodge is included in your overall cost.

You will fly from Anchorage to the lodge the day prior to the start of your fishing adventure, and return to Anchorage the day after you’re done fishing. The owners reside at the lodge, year round, and know the region extremely well.

No matter what the fish species (listed above) you want to pursue, it’s just a matter of timing. Generally, the best time for sheefish and pike is the last two weeks of June, but they can be caught through all of July and into August.

July is the prime month to fish this wonderful place, as that’s the best time to catch multiple species. The lodge starts their fly-out fishing the last week of June, wrapping up the end of the first week in August. For those wanting brilliantly colored Arctic char, the last three weeks of July are best. Once the outfitter knows what fish you want to catch, a trip can be personally tailored for you.

We’ve been to this lodge and fished many rivers and streams. What we really like is each day can be planned to your liking. One day we caught loads of sheefish. The next, over 50 coho. The following day was spent catching big pike, followed by another day of flyfishing for coho in a crystal clear, nameless little stream. Of all the places we’ve fished in Alaska over the last quarter-century, this one offers what could be the most isolated, exciting fishing adventures we’ve experienced. Brown bear viewing can also be arranged.

Each day you and a guide will hop into a bush plane at the lodge and fly to a remote river. You’ll land on a gravel bar or river, where a boat will be ready to go. Simply transport your gear from the plane to your boat, then go fishing. If the plane doesn’t wait for you, it will return to pick you up at the end of the day.

Traveling by bush plane is very costly, but is the only way to reach many of Alaska’s most breathtaking, remote fishing destinations. Should you wish to hang back at the lodge for a day or two, enjoying the stunning scenery, sauna and comfortable lodge, this will reduce the cost of the total trip. This outfitter is very flexible and easy to work with.

Due to the high overhead of maintaining and flying bush planes, hiring the best pilots and seasoned guides, gratuities typically range between 10-15%, but are optional.

Travel Planning

Anglers fly into Anchorage, then head to the bush plane hanger only a couple minutes away. A Twin Otter, or large bush plane, will fly you and other party members directly to this remote lodge. From there, the lodge’s private bush planes will take you fishing each day. Should you arrive in Anchorage too late to fly to the lodge, simply overnight in a nearby hotel, then head to the bush plane hanger the following morning.
