Fly out to the lodge on one of our chartered float planes!Your No See Um Lodge adventure begins in Anchorage.  On Mondays your round-trip charter flight from Anchorage to King Salmon will be on 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 at 2pm), arriving in King Salmon around 4pm. Upon arriving in King Salmon you will be greeted by our lodge pilots. From there you will board one of our De Havilland Beavers and fly out to the lodge. Guides will be available to help you set-up and evaluate your gear, and you will have time to enjoy an appetizer and a cocktail before dinner.

Tuesday through Sunday are all-day fishing days. The structure of our fishing program gives us unparalleled flexibility and because of this there’s no “typical” day. Every day the rivers we fish are decided on based on fishing and river conditions, weather, and guest input. It’s a customized fishing experience. Breakfast time will be determined at dinner the evening before, but generally is between 6 and 7:30 am. You will be woken up 15 minutes before breakfast with a knock on your door and cup a freshly brewed coffee. After breakfast you will fly out to your fishing location and will remain out all day. Lunch is packed fresh every morning and will be carried by your guide and eaten on the river. You will arrive back to the lodge one hour before dinner, appetizers are served in the guest house at this time. Dinner is generally served 12 hours after breakfast. So for example, if breakfast is served at 7am, you would arrive back at the lodge at 6pm and dinner would be at 7pm. During dinner, plans will be made for the following day.

On the following Monday morning our pilots will fly you back to King Salmon to meet the charter for the flight back to Anchorage.  You will still want to book connecting flights after 2pm to allow time for any weather delays.
