Booking for : Goodnews River Lodge – Alaska

Goodnews River Lodge – Alaska

Tour Details

Goodnews River Lodge is that rare find in the fishing world. Fishing here is like fishing was before the crowds discovered your favorite secret fishing hole. It is the ONLY full service lodge located on the Goodnews River, a three branch wilderness river system about 450 miles from Anchorage, at the edge of the Togiak National Wilderness Reserve and flowing into the Bering Sea in southwest Alaska.

Being the ONLY Lodge on the Goodnews River assures a minimum of fishing pressure. If you’ve fished some of the more famous Rivers in Alaska, you know you have to compete for the best spots on the river with other Lodges. Not here. The only other anglers you’re likely to see are your camp mates! The River boasts outstanding runs of all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, sea run Dolly Varden, and resident Leopard Rainbow Trout and Grayling. The Lodge is a fixed camp on the banks of the main branch just above tidewater, and is not a fly out Lodge, so weather is rarely an issue. Access the over 490 miles of fishable water via a fleet of high speed jet boats.

Get Ready For:

    • 8 days, 7 nights, 6 1⁄2 days of fully guided fishing
    • One Guide for every 2 anglers

There are 6 bathrooms, each with hot shower, sink and toilet, and a heated drying room for waders and fishing gear so they are dry and ready for the next day’s fishing.

*Deluxe upgraded larger Weatherports complete with full bath are available at an additional charge on a first come first served basis.

Gourmet meals are served in our Dining Hall, and after dinner guests can relax in our Recreation Hall after a long day of fishing. Our capacity is 16-24 guests per week, depending on the week.

Day 1-6,Goodnews River Lodge

Each day starts with a hot breakfast of pancakes, eggs, breakfast pork, fruit and juices. After a hot cup of coffee you will grab your day bag and head out for a day of fishing with your guide. Bears, bald eagles, and other wildlife will be abundant! Lunch will be on the boat, and then more fishing. Once the day is done you will head back to the lodge for a hot shower and a delicious chef prepared meal. After dinner you can enjoy a drink and play some cards, or call it a day and get rested up for another day of action!

Brian Oakland

Being born and raised in Montana helped shape and mold my desires to be either standing in a river, or hiking on some mountain ridge. The outdoors is where I’m most connected to who I am, and what is really important in life. It helps me keep things in perspective! Because of this upbringing, and the relationship I’ve developed with nature, I want to help ensure that anyone that has a desire to headout and enjoy an outdoor adventure is on the perfect trip for them. We don’t “sell” fishing trips at Got Fishing. We work with you to design the perfect trip that fits your desired location, your style of fishing, and your most importantly your budget! It doesn’t take long to realize what a huge resource Got Fishing is, and just how much we care! I look forward to working with you. Brian Oakland Owner
