Current 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.   6 days = $5,050,   5 days =$4,350,   4 days = $3,625. 

Rate Adjustments:


  • Each returning client receives a 5% discount.
  • Groups of 4 or more receive a 5% discount for all in the group
  • Non fishing partners and children under 16 receive a 50% discount. This is not combined with other discounts.
  • Those fishing with 3 or more in a single boat will receive a 5% discount.


  • Each client is charged Borough taxes of $11 per person per night.
  • For an additional $300 per day a client is guaranteed exclusive use of the boat and guide.
  • At times we can accommodate arrival at the lodge between 3pm and 6pm the day before the client starts fishing. $175 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. It also helps avoid weather and float plane delays.
  • If we have an available guide, you can add on an extra fishing for $150 to the lodge and $25 per person to the guide for a total of $175 per person.  Guides are limited to two sessions per day.
  • Tips can be included in your invoice and prepaid or made directly at the lodge. 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.
