Here’s a few questions that clients frequently ask. You can always contact us if you have any additional questions.
How much does a trip cost?
Wild River Trips are $4595. – $5200. per person per week/ based upon distance from Dillingham and float plane operating costs. View the trip pricing page for more details.
Are Wild River Trips appropriate for anglers who have never camped or entry level fly casters?
Every year we host first time campers and first time fly casters. The most important quality of a participant is enthusiasm. Having said that, the more fly fishing skill you bring to Alaska, the more time you’ll be hooked up to extraordinary fish. Comparisons are made that a fly fishing trip to Bristol Bay is a pinnacle of wild trout and salmon angling like a pilgrimage to St. Andrews is to a golf enthusiast.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, a 50% deposit is required to hold your place on a trip. An email correspondence or phone conversation with our staff will hold your reservations for 14 days. View the deposits & cancellations page for more details.
Are Wild River Trips appropriate for outdoorsmen and women in their 60’s and 70’s?
We host anglers in their 60’s and 70’s every week of the season who have come for the trip of a lifetime. If mobility is not a problem and medical issues are well managed then spending a week camping along one of the greatest fly fishing rivers in the world is a treasured experience! We’re happy to furnish references and contact information for guests of various ages.
When is the full / final payment required?
Full payment (the remaining 50%) is required 120 days prior to your trips departure.
What address to send payment to?
Check made out to: Alaska’s Wild River Guides LLC
5 Quaker Lane
What about children?
We work with parents to create an outstanding trip for everyone. Safety is always our primary concern. A telephone conversation can help determine if an Alaskan river trip is a great choice for you and your kids.
Do you supply fishing gear if we don’t have it or forgot our own?
We do have a large cache of gear and supplies available for our clients use. Please contact us ahead of time for any special requests or sizing for gear. You should absolutely read the gear discussion before packing for your trip.
Some of the anglers in my group don’t fly fish. Will they be able to fish with spinning gear??
