While we know that nothing in life is free, we've done our best to make it easier and more affordable for you to visit the Goodnews River Lodge. We know that you'll leave with a limit of priceless memories!
A Fishing Adventure package at the Goodnews River Lodge for 2018 includes 6 1/2 days of guided fishing, with only two anglers per guide, all meals, transfers and double occupancy in the camp. All flies, lures, and terminal tackle are included as well. In addition, we do have a supply of loaner gear available including rods, reels, waders, etc. at no cost should you need them. Because there is no commercial service to the town of Goodnews Bay, we have arranged for a private charter direct from Anchorage to Goodnews Bay. For each week of our 2018 season, round trip air transportation to and from Anchorage and Goodnews Bay via our Super DC-3 Charter costs $975 per angler, and is not included in the above pricing. Please limit your baggage weight to 50# plus a 10lb. carry-on.
Children 16 and under accompanied by an adult are welcome any week of the season at the fishing package price of $3995, plus airfare of $975.

* The weeks of Aug 1-8, Aug 8-15 and Aug 15-22 are our most popular weeks of the season, and we are currently maintaining a Wait List for each of these weeks. If you are interested in these weeks, it’s best to get on the Wait List early. There is no cost to do so, and we will contact you when space becomes available. You will then have the opportunity to book your Adventure.
** A Cast and Blast Option is available for Aug 29-Sept 6 only. Limited to 6 participants, you can hunt Ducks and Ptarmigan early or late, then fish for Silvers and Rainbows for the rest of the day. This quintessential Alaskan experience is available for an additional $1000 per person.
