What Gear to Bring
What to Bring to our Alaska Fishing Lodge
It is highly recommended that you fly with a carry on bag that contains any necessary medications, a couple days supply of personal hygiene products, an extra set of warm clothing, and a water proof jacket. There have been rare occasions of baggage arriving a day or two later than the clients due to conditions at the airlines.

No Felt Soled Wading Boots in Alaska Now!
The State of Alaska Department Fish & Game no longer allows felt-soled wading boots to be used in Alaska. Effective January 1, 2012, footgear with absorbent felt or other fibrous material on the soles are prohibited while sport fishing in the fresh waters of Alaska. The regulation was put in place to reduce the potential for the introduction and spread of invasive organisms to Alaskan waters. Thank you for keeping Alaskan waters clean and productive! Bring only rubber-soled or other impervious materials (plastics, etc.) to wear with your waders.
