What clothing item do I need to bring with me?
Alaskan weather is unpredictable at best. During the fishing season, temperatures can range from the 40s to the high 70s, with the average being in the 60s.
We suggest that you layer your clothes, so that you’re prepared for everything from cool, windy and rainy, to warm, calm and sunny. The atmosphere at the lodge is informal, so choose clothes that are comfortable, but casually smart. A washer and dryer are available for you to use.
2-3 pairs of lightweight, thermal underwear like Long Johns
2-3 flannel or heavy cotton shirts or turtlenecks
3 pairs of thermal or woolen socks
6 pairs of cotton socks
1 windbreaker or insulated jacket
1 pair rubber-soled shoes or short boots to wear on the boat
1 pair of gloves
1 knit cap
1 hat or cap with a brow
Comfortable-fitting pants for outdoor use
1 bathing suit (for the hot tub)
1 pair sneakers or hiking boots
1 pair of casual shoes or slippers for lodge wear
Knapsack or similar for day use
Sun screen or sun block
Personal toiletries and medications, insect repellant
Cellular phone or phone card
We provide all the saltwater and fresh water gear that you will need. Fly fishermen are requested to bring their own rod & reel: an 8-weight rod works best. We also supply rain gear for most sizes, but you may bring your own if you prefer.
