Trip Information

* Fishing trips can accommodate up to three anglers daily*


Each full-day trip begins and ends in the village of King Salmon, Alaska.* Breakfast will be at 7:00 a.m.. After breakfast I will collect your party at your lodge at 7:45 a.m.. A brief drive then takes us to the airport, where we depart by 8:00 a.m.. Flights to the fishing spots average 25- 30 minutes long.
Several different creeks may be fished during the day, depending on fishing conditions and weather. Some hiking is required on all trips; usually short, occasionally up to a mile or more for the day. Hiking on the tundra is moderately strenuous, and guests need only carry their rods, fishing vest, and extra clothing layers; I carry all other gear and lunches in a backpack. We will arrive back in King Salmon that evening by 6:00 p.m.. Dinner is on your schedule: King Salmon has two restaurants within walking distance, both serving dinner until 9:00 p.m..

* Overnight camping trips are available with advanced notice, and weather depending. Please contact if interested.


Guests are responsible for their airfare to and from King Salmon, which is served from Anchorage by Alaska Airlines and Pen Air. Several flights daily on both airlines make reaching King Salmon simple. I will meet your party at the terminal and help you check into your lodge. If possible, please plan
to arrive in King Salmon the evening before your trip begins, so that your first day of fishing can be a full one. For departure, you may select the evening Pen Air flight which departs King Salmon at 7:40 p.m., or stay another night and depart on a morning flight.


Fishing trips accommodate up to three anglers daily. A group of three
fishermen is limited to a combined total body weight of 600 lbs.. Fishing for rainbows, char, dolly varden, and grayling is catch and release only. The future of these wild Alaskan fisheries depends upon responsible anglers. Guests may keep fresh salmon in season. Due to airplane loading considerations, each angler may keep one king salmon per day, or two sockeye or silver salmon per day. All Alaska fishing regulations, including daily bag and possession limits, will be adhered to at all times.

If poor weather prevents flying for an entire day, local powerboat fishing trips on the Naknek River can usually be arranged as a backup.
