Goodnews River Lodge


togiak fishing Fresh air. Wide-open vistas. Really wild, wildlife. Unspoiled nature as it was intended to be. No fishing pressure. Truly epic fishing. All describe the adventure that awaits you at Goodnews River Lodge in Alaska.

If you are looking for a Fishing Lodge that puts fishing first, then look no further. We are the only full service lodge located on the Goodnews River, a three branch wilderness river system located about 450 miles from Anchorage and flowing into the Bering Sea in southwest Alaska. As the only Lodge fishing the River, we control the amount of fishing pressure and are able to protect our fish. You don't have to worry about some one beating you to the best spots, because the only other fisherman you are likely to see are your camp mates, or those of the furry persuasion.

So Many Fish!

The River boasts outstanding runs of all 5 species of pacific salmon, sea run dolly varden, and resident leopard rainbows and grayling. The Lodge is a fixed camp right on the river just above tidewater, and is not a fly out camp. We access over 490 miles of river, creeks, braids and sloughs via a fleet of high speed jet boats. Our Guests stay in high tech elevated Weatherport tent/cabins, each with fixed windows and door and a propane heater for those chilly Alaska nights. There are 6 bathrooms, each with hot showers, sinks and toilets. Also unique to us is a heated drying room for your waders and fishing gear so they are dry and ready for the next day's fishing. Gourmet meals are served in our dining and recreational facility.

Your Typical Day

alaska fishing Your typical day will start with a coffee and wake up service at your cabin if you choose. Breakfast is served family style at 7:00 am. At that time you will also make a sandwich for lunch, order a shore lunch, or decide to come back to the camp for lunch. You will also be offered a choice of entrees for dinner that evening, including the option of fresh fish. Boats leave the camp at 8:15 am and return at 5:30 PM. Dinner is served between 6:30 and 7:00 PM. Your Guides are assigned each evening after dinner for the next day's fishing. This gives you a chance to discuss what species you want to fish for the next day with your Guide, and make sure you have the right gear ready. We rotate our Guides every day. That way our guests get to know all of our Guides and experience many different parts of the river, as each Guide has his favorite fishing spots and techniques. We do not put more than 2 anglers with a Guide and Boat. You are then free to relax for the rest of the evening, or if you have the desire, you can sample the outstanding fishing available right in front of the Lodge.

You owe it to yourself to try this amazing time on the River.

We have specially priced the weeks of July 16-23 and July 23-30 at only $3995 per angler! (*Charter airfare of $900 is additional). What a great way to introduce friends and family to what Alaska and the Goodnews River Lodge has to offer.

As a new guest said this past year- "You told me about the great King fishing, and about the great Rainbow fishing available here at the Lodge, but you never told me about these incredible 'Tigers'! What an awesome fish!" Want to see what you've been missing? Don't hesitate. Call now to make your reservation. We hope you'll join us for what we know will be one of the best trips you'll ever take to the Goodnews River Lodge.

Cast and Blast - September 3-10

alaska fishing If you can't decide whether you'd rather hunt for Ducks or fish for Silver Salmon fresh from the Bering Sea, this is the trip for you. Come join us for the best that Alaska has to offer the week of Sept 3-10, 2014. You'll start your day shooting your limit of Ducks, and then fish out the rest of the day for incredible Goodnews River Silver Salmon. The Silvers are still pouring into the River this week, and 50+ fish days are the norm for those who spend the day fishing. This incredible offer is open to only 4 guests this week, and costs the same as the fishing only package this week, only $4995 plus your charter airfare of $900. (Fishing License, Duck Stamps and Gratuities are additional). If this is the kind of trip you've been looking for, don't miss out on this incredible combo package.

Our season books up quickly, and all reservations will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Reservations can only be guaranteed upon receipt of a 50% non-refundable deposit. If you are interested in booking a specific week,  it is best to do it well in advance.
