Worrying about preparing for your trip shouldn't dampen your excitement over coming to the best fishing lodge in Alaska. A trip to the Goodnews River Lodge lets you focus on strolling down to the river each morning for another great day of fishing. Our Pre-Trip Planner contains suggestions for a one-week stay at the Goodnews River Lodge, including clothing, gear, and rod/line suggestions. Flies, lures, and terminal tackle are all provided, but feel free to bring your own. Please be aware that the Goodnews River is restricted to single hook, artificial bait only, so change out those treble hooks to single hooks. Also, the State of Alaska has banned felt sole boots throughout the state starting Jan 1, 2012, so leave the felts at home. We have a limited amount of gear on loan at the camp, including waders and wading boots, fly and spin rods at no cost to you. Be sure to let us know when you make your reservation if you need us to reserve any items for you, and they will be waiting for you in your tent when you arrive.
