Your Packing List

You will need to bring your personal items such as:

Layered warm clothing
Camera or Go-Pro
Waterproof jacket
Sunglasses and/or prescription eyewear
Medications & medicinal needs
Hats & gloves should you desire them
Fishing license
Government-issued identification or passport

*Your fishing license can be purchased when you arrive at the lodge.

If you are an avid angler who prefers his/her own gear, no problem! Feel free to pack that as well. If you travel with a Drone for photography purposes please note FAA regulations about flight restrictions in the Bristol Bay region. There are many small aircrafts in this area, it is your personal responsibility to adhere to federal regulations and operate your drone safely.

Fishing License

Your fishing license can be purchased in advance or when you arrive at the lodge.

The State of Alaska assesses a sport fisherman license fee for residents and non-residents. Resident fishing licenses are good for the calendar year.

Non-residents can purchase their license based on the number of days that they intend to fish.

The only fish species which requires a special permit is King Salmon. A "king tag" is an additional purchase added to your license.

To comply with state and federal laws, your guide will record catches throughout your stay.
