2019 Alagnak Lodge Fishing Rates
Trip Rate: The trip rate is computed by adding the base charge to the charge for the number of days you spend fishing. The base is $725 plus $725 per day. For instance, 7 days fishing would be $725 + (7 x $725) = $5,800. The daily government tax is an additional $14.50 daily and not subject to discounts.
All rates include your transfers by van and floatplane between the King Salmon airport and the lodge, as well as lodging, meals, fully guided fishing, use of our gear, terminal tackle and the processing and packaging of your salmon to take home. If you follow the standard procedure of arriving in the morning and departing in the afternoon, you will fish the afternoon and evening sessions on the arrival day then not fish at all on the day of departure. When you pay for say 5 days you will spend 5 nights at the lodge and fish 10 sessions, 2 per day. Not included: Round-trip transportation from your home to King Salmon. Personal clothing and items of a personal nature. Fishing license and king salmon tags (July only).
Deposits: A 25% deposit is required to confirm the reservation. The 2nd 25% is due on January 31st. The balance is due 60 days prior to your arrival date.
Deposit and refund policy: Cancellations before December 31st will result in a 100% refund minus any third-party fees if applicable. Cancellations after December 31st will result in 100% of the deposit applied to a future reservation.
Tips can be included in your invoice and prepaid or made directly at the lodge. The choice is yours. Prepaid tips are at the rate of $80 per day per client. These are not subject to discount and will be passed to the service personnel in their paychecks. If a trip is cancelled, the prepaid tip will be fully refunded.
Flyouts: We do a direct pass through of the cost of any flyouts. You can pay Branch River Air (BRA) directly when you take the flight or we can include it in your billing and we will pay BRA. A Cessna 206 with a weight limit of 850# for the guests and guide was $1,500 in 2018 and a Beaver with a 1,400# weight limit was $2,400. If you want to self guide and go to Brooks Falls on the day of departure BRA offers a special price of $1,200 (206) or $1,950 (Beaver) to pick you and your luggage up at the lodge in the morning, drop you off at Brooks, fly your luggage to AKN then pick you up in time to meet your departing flight to ANC.
2019 Rate Adjustments
Returning guests receive a 5% discount.
- Groups of 4 or more receive a 10% discount for all in the group.
Non-fishing spouses and children 15 and under receive a 50% discount. This will not be combined with other discounts.
Those fishing with 3 or more to a boat will all receive a 10% discount daily.
Those who want to be guaranteed to fish alone with a guide and boat can pay $300 extra per fishing day. This must be reserved in advance.
At times we can accommodate arrival at the lodge between 3pm and 6pm the day before the client starts fishing. $150 is the charge for this service and it includes lodging plus supper and breakfast. This is done to allow clients to limit their travel to one day and avoid an overnight stopover in Anchorage or King Salmon. This option is subject to lodging availability.
For those willing to wait until after May 15th to select their exact fishing time we offer a 25% discount. The available reservation periods will be selected on a first come, first served basis based on the date the deposit is received. If the guest decides a suitable date is not available, the deposit will be returned in its entirety.
