Alaska Fly In Fishing and Camping

One of the great things about our trip is that it is very isolated - no phones, no curio shops or timeshare condos. But, it also means that all our supplies must be brought in by float plane. Consequently, there is the possibility we will occasionally run short of certain items. We would appreciate your patience should this occur.

Also, fishing can be somewhat unpredictable. The weather can play an important part in your fishing success. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather, but the guides will make every effort to insure the best possible angling under whatever the prevailing water and weather conditions might be.

Flight Delays

If you are forced to change your travel plans while en route to Alaska, you can contact a BOA representative at the telephone numbers listed below. In general, you do not need to report flight delays unless they will cause you to arrive in Alaska less than 24 hours prior to you float plane flight. BOA staff is in direct contact with the airlines and will be aware of flight time changes. If your flight is canceled, or you are forced to change flights, please call one of the numbers listed below to report your new itinerary.

If your delay causes you to arrive in King Salmon late, it is likely that you will miss all the scheduled float planes to the camp and will be required to spend an additional night at a hotel in King Salmon.  If this is the case, please contact BOA's reservation office as soon as you check-in to your hotel. Delays that require an additional overnight stay in King Salmon will cause you to incur a substantial air charter surcharge. These charges are supplied by the air charter company and are non negotiable.  We cannot guarantee that you will be able to schedule a last minute flight to camp.


If, when you arrive in King Salmon, you find that your luggage has been misplaced by the airlines, you must report it to an airline representative before you leave the baggage claim area. If you do not, it is likely that you will not recover your lost items. Do not surrender your original baggage claim stubs when making a lost baggage claim with an airline. Insist that they make photocopies for their records. After informing the airline, report the loss to the lodge's local representative. He will make every attempt to forward your baggage to the lodge if it is found by the airline.

06/05/10 Update on Baggage: Many airlines now are charging a fee for checked baggage, as well as paying more attention to the weight of your checked bags. We recommend that you check with your airline prior to departure.

We strongly encourage guests to pack lightly in soft sided bags to facilitate loading the float plane aircraft. This is very IMPORTANT!  Oversized / overweight baggage could jeopardize everyone's safety.
