Fishing Trip Rates

Hello fishermen, thank you for your interest in our lodge. You'll find our prices to be less expensive than most of the tent camps and nearly half the cost of the few other lodges on the river. With over 20 years of operating a fishing business on the Nushagak River we know where the fish are and how to keep you satisfied. Happy Fisherman

Our cabins are designed to accommodate 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. Our boats can all comfortably fish 4 adults. These numbers can help you plan your trip and party members but if you need other arrangements just give us a call and we'll make something work.

 

 

All our trips are unguided. We use 19'6" flat bottom boats powered by easy to operate 40HP Honda electric start 4-Stroke engines.Yamaha 4 Stroke 40

 

 

 

We will go over the basics of how to start and operate the engine and our dock makes landing much more convenient but we do expect you have had some experience running a boat with an outboard motor. Several of the rivers best fishing holes are within sight of our camp and rarely does anyone have trouble finding the fish. We find this setup gives fishermen the flexibility they desire and the ability to fish up to 16 hours a day as opposed to some camps where you spend less than 6 hours on the river.

We require a 50% deposit upon booking a fishing or hunting trip. Your deposit will be 100% refundable if you notify us 90 days prior to your scheduled trip. Cancellations made with less than 90 days notice will be subject to no refund unless the spot can be filled or there is a proven medical emergency. The balance of your trip is due by April 15th.

Additional Expenses

We use a private flight service from Dillingham to the Nushagak River Lodge. The cost for this ticket is $1 per pound which incudes your weight and all of your gear. It is not uncommon to see moose, caribou, and brown bear along the trip and it is an excellent way to see the beautiful Alaskan landscape.

There will be a charge for the gas used operating your boat. The cost of this can vary widely depending on your individual usage but the average cost per person is usually around $40 with three fishermen in the boat.

Of course you'll need a State Of Alaska fishing license. We sell these in camp so there is no need to make a special trip into Dillingham. The cost of your license depends on the length of your stay but a five day license will be $55 plus $30 for a Salmon Tag (See the Alaska Fishing Regulations for current prices).

And round trip airfare from your home to Dillingham, AK (Airport Code DLG).

*During Silver Salmon season we provide the food and utensils and you do your own cooking.
