Daily Routine

Choose your adventure each day

Upon arrival, our head guide will meet with you to discuss the type of fishing trip and adventure you would like to have and the options available during your stay.

If you find that a specific river or type of fishing fits your desires more so than another, it's important you share that feedback with your guide as to the type of fishing experience you want. Guests are welcome to request a particular guide.

Some adventures are physically strenuous. Know your body's limitations and communicate with your guide. In some cases, anglers could walk several miles through tundra to reach remote locations with limited resources.

Each evening our guides discuss which rivers were hot for fishing and which weren't. This allows all guides to pool their knowledge for the benefit of our clients. The head guide also checks with the pilots for the following day's weather forecast, so they can put together the schedule for the next day and assign guides with clients.

Keep in mind that weather controls our ability, or lack thereof, to accomplish the fly-outs each day so you will have to demonstrate rigid flexibility.

A typical day on our home river

If you chose to fish the Naknek River, your guide will have your boat ready and will be waiting for you on the dock each morning.

We have fixed times for aircraft departures and mealtimes at the lodges, but other than those, you can you can work with your guide to plan out whatever fishing schedule you would like.

  • 5:45 a.m. - Breakfast, made to order, begins
  • 7 a.m. - Depart lodge for a day of fishing on the Naknek River
  • Lunch  - Served riverside by your guide
  • 5 p.m. - Wrap up and head back to the lodge

Guests are allowed to fish after dinner in June and July, if they wish. However, there is a 9:45 p.m. curfew for the guides at which time they need to have all guests back at the lodge.

A typical day on a fly-out trip

The first thing to keep in mind about any fly-out activity is that the weather controls everything that we do. We are located in a remote part of the world and we are flying in a rugged wilderness where weather conditions change rapidly and sometimes unexpectedly.

We schedule fly-outs the night before based upon weather predictions and fishing conditions.

  • 5:45 a.m. - Breakfast, made to order, begins
  • 7 a.m. - Depart lodge for a day of fishing on a remote river or sightseeing
  • Lunch - Served shoreside by your guide
  • 4:30-5:30 p.m. - Return to the lodge
  • 6:30 p.m. - Cocktails and appetizers in the main lodge
  • 7:30 p.m. - Dinner in the main lodge.

Guests are allowed to fish after dinner in June and July, if they wish. However, there is a 9:45 p.m. curfew for the guides at which time they need to have all guests back at the lodge.

Fly-outs can be rigorous, depending on which excursion you chose. Please communicate with your guide about any physical limitations that you may have and know your personal limits.
