Alaska Fishing Licenses

Alaska Fishing Licenses are available for 1, 3, 7, 14 days or annual periods. Fishing stamps are also required for king salmon. It is helpful to purchase your license prior to arriving to Alaska to save you time. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has a great online site for purchasing your licenses for your entire crew.

Alaska fishing regulations are ever-changing. You need to be aware of fish limits and restrictions in each area of Alaska you will be fishing in.

Trip Packing Suggestions

Packing for your Alaska fishing trip requires you to prioritize your list of necessities, but keep it simple. It's possible to be warm, dry and comfortable without packing bulky and/or unnecessary items. You'll thank us later for this point. Alaska is actually quite temperate in the summer so no parkas necessary! Visit our fishing trip packing page for clothing and other fishing and non-fishing accessories you should consider bringing with you to our lodge, on a float trip or any wilderness adventure in Alaska for that matter.
