With in twenty-five minutes flying time from Wildman Lake Lodge, we have a number of remote salmon streams. We feel it important to spend your day fishing, not flying. Whether you enjoy fly fishing or if spin-casting is your specialty, our bush pilot-guides have years of experience on the Alaska Peninsula and know exactly where the best fishing will be found, at any particular time of the season. We have jet boats on several remote rivers and in other places we are able to wade or bank fish right where we land the airplanes. Little or no walking is necessary to get you into the very best fishing available.
We take along folding tables, chairs and cook stoves on your fly-out fishing days. The guides will cook up a delicious shore lunch, right on the banks of the river, featuring "the catch of the day," or hot sandwiches, hearty soups & chowders. Every shore lunch includes great salads, assorted chips, fresh baked cookies and your choice of beverages. On the river it is important to have something hot for lunch every day and plenty of goodies.
