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 2019 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 2019 season, round trip air transportation to and from Anchorage and Goodnews Bay via our private charter costs $995 per angler, and is not included in the above pricing. Please limit your baggage weight to 50# plus a 10lb. carry-on.
Here are our 2019 weeks of operation, species availability by week, and the fishing package price per week, per person. (Bold type denotes peak runs)
