Fly out to the lodge on one of our chartered float planes!

Your No See Um Lodge adventure begins in Anchorage. You can read our Trip Planning page for details about our charter flight from Anchorage.  Upon arriving in King Salmon you will be greeted by our lodge pilots. From there you will board one of our three De Havilland Beavers and fly out to the lodge.  You will be back at the lodge an hour before dinner to enjoy appetizers and a cocktail.

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. Depending on the location and season you might even have a shore lunch of fresh fish.

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 your departing Monday, you will leave the lodge and fly back to King Salmon immediately after breakfast. We recommend you book your departing flight from Anchorage after 2pm as we occasionally have weather delays.
