Looking forward to 2019

After finishing up the 2018 season at the lodge and having some time to contemplate the lessons learned from this past season and how we would like to improve going forward.  We have decided to make a couple of changes for the upcoming 2019 season.

In order to offer a couple of single-occupancy rooms we will be reducing the number of guests at the lodge from 12 to 10.  This will allow us to offer two single-occupancy rooms at a rate of $12,000 and four double-occupancy rooms at a rate of $10,500.  The two single rooms will be sold on a first-come first-serve basis.

On Mondays your round-trip charter flight from Anchorage to King Salmon will be with a local air taxi, Katmai Air.  We will book those flights for you and that cost is included in the weekly rate.

The flight out to the lodge will depart Anchorage at 3:00pm.  You will need to check-in to the Katmai Air’s Lake Hood office (4125 Aircraft Drive) by 2:00pm.  Most hotels with an airport shuttle will bring you to Lake Hood, but you might want to confirm before booking any hotel rooms.  Our planes will meet you in King Salmon, and once at the lodge you will have time to unpack, get settled, and unwind with a cocktail and appetizers before dinner.  Guides will be available to help you set-up and evaluate your gear.

The return flight to Anchorage will be the following Monday morning.  You will want to book connecting flights after 2pm to allow time for any weather delays.  Katmai Air will have a shuttle at Lake Hood to bring you to Ted Stevens International Airport, or to nearby hotels.

There will also be a couple new faces on our staff this summer.  We would like to welcome Kris Robinson (pilot/Guide) and Chace Booth (Guide).  Both are valuable additions to our staff and we are excited to have them.  You can read more on our Fishing Guide page.

We certainly hope that these changes will lead to an improved experience at the lodge!  If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback please feel free to call or email.
