Planning an Alaska fishing trip requires time, patience and research. After you book your trip, there is a number of essentials you will need to be aware of before cutting loose on your adventure. Our trip planning page should be a helpful guide for you! Throughout the planning process, feel free to email us here at Wilderness Place Lodge as we're happy to answer any questions you may have and point you in the right direction.

One of the best guides to use when you plan your Alaska fishing trip is to check in regularly with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game's fishing website. ADF&G offers information on regulations, fishing reports, biological data, research reports and is responsible for all matters of licensing, conservation and enforcement with regards to fish and wildlife in the state of Alaska. Also, be sure to view our Lodge Guest Orientation Page. Planning your Alaska fishing trip requires diligent research. Our trip planner links to various informative pages both on our site and others to help you successfully prepare for your adventure.
