Arrival: Guests leave for the lodge from Rust's Flying Service at Anchorage Lake Hood (adjacent to Anchorage International Airport) at 11:00 AM. It is recommended for the fishermen to arrive in Anchorage on the day before their trip to the lodge. We are happy to help suggest convenient Anchorage hotels for lodging the night prior to your flight for our lodge. Upon your arrival to Anchorage the evening before your flight to the lodge, call Rust's Flying Service at (907) 243-1595 for a complimentary shuttle pick-up.

Departure: On the last day of your trip you can fish the majority of the morning hours. Packing your bags the night before helps maximize your time on the water the following morning. Rust's float plane arrives on the Yentna river approximately 11:30 and you can plan to depart the lodge at 11:45 AM, arriving back to Rust's Flying Service in Anchorage by 12:30 PM. It is best to allow a few additional hours in Anchorage before flying home from the Anchorage International Airport.
