Transportation to camp will begin early in the morning and your pickup time will be arranged the evening before. The drive to the float plane departure point is approximately 25 minutes. You will then board the plane for the one hour flight to camp. We recommend having your camera handy for the trip.

Upon landing on the river near camp a boat will transport you for the short ride to camp. Once settled at camp you will be served a lunch and shortly after your guide will take you fishing. 2 or 3 trips are required to transport all guests to camp and the plane will make a return trip to bring in the next group of anglers.
Friday – Wednesday
Each fishing day will begin with a wake-up around 6:30 a.m. with your favorite morning beverage delivered to your tent. Breakfast is served at 7:00 a.m. Shortly after breakfast your guide will make certain you are prepared for the day on the water and it’s off to a full day of fishing… arriving back in camp at 5:00 p.m. for a shower and cocktails/appetizers. Dinner is served at 7:00 p.m. During the evening, if you still are not ‘fished out,’ you are welcome to fish the ‘home waters’ on your own.

Departure Day (Thursday)
First flight departs camp mid morning. flights will continue until all guests are back to the Dillingham airport. Schedule your flight out of Dillingham no earlier than 5:00 p.m. as weather delays may affect your ability to depart earlier. Should weather not interfere getting to Dillingham, an earlier flight is usually available. For minimal stress, you might consider overnighting in Dillingham again.
