This package includes all meals during your stay. 6 days of guided lodge based river experiences, whether it be fishing, wildlife- viewing or adventure activities. Comfortable heated riverfront cabin with access to toilet and hot showers only a few steps away from your cabin door, or en-suite toilet and hot showers. You will arrive on Sunday, and activities begin Monday through Saturday with departure on the following Sunday.
For those who think a toilet and bed is too extravagant and would rather spend their nights in a tent surrounded by the stars and sounds of the wild, we have the perfect package for you. Our guests will stay in a tent camp on the lower Alagnak river hosted by professional guides and targeting primarily fresh sea-run salmon. There is a possibility for Rainbow Camps near the Lake Outlets early season in June as well. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Your meals are included, and your help around camp is expected.
If you are more in tune with nature and would rather spend your days floating down river on a raft, evenings setting up camp and sleeping in tent under the stars, then our float trip package is right up your ally. You will be dropped off with your guide at the source of the river and picked up miles downstream 7 days later. You will be expected to help with the setting up and breaking down of camp each day as well as other daily chores. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. All meals included.
And finally, for the extreme Chuck Norris types out there, we provide a do it yourself float trip package. We will send you and/or your group, off on this adventure trip with everything you need, from pots and pans to the rafts and tents you will be spending your days and nights in. This is a great way to live out your childhood dream of pitting yourself against a remote Alaskan river, with just a rod in hand, and no one to answer to. Now I like a warm bed and flush toilet myself, but don't let me stop you from living your dream! Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Bring your own food.
Angler's Alibi is a rustic, yet comfortable, fishing camp on the Alagnak River in the famous Bristol Bay watershed, 23 miles North of King Salmon. This cozy camp is just outside the Katmai National Park boundary, over 250 miles from the nearest highway. Its location on the tidewater section of the Alagnak River means that you don't even need to leave camp to find amazing fishing. No fly-outs means you can spend more time on the river than at other lodges. Or, fly-out to Moraine Creek, Funnel Creek, and other fantastic fishing holes to say you were there. The near 90% guest return rate at Angler's Alibi offers evidence of its excellence.
Midnight Sun offers trophy pike adventures in Western Alaska on the back sloughs of one of Alaska's greatest rivers; the Yukon. The lodge is unique as it is a refurbished rustic houseboat with a luxury feel and an at-home atmosphere. You will find the Midnight Sun 310 miles due West of Anchorage on the Yukon. Expect to troll the 210 mile slow moving river where the environment has come together to create a haven for Northern Pike. These monster predators are smart, fast, and they fight like nothing else. Pike size along the Yukon range from 10 to 40 pounds. Don't expect to kick-it on the houseboat for your whole adventure. The lodge sits amid a number of choice fishing habitats and fight-fishing trips easily land you on the Kuskokwim or the Lower Yukon drainage where you may encounter something fiercer than a pike... a Sheefish.
