  • 2 pair pants (fleece)
  • 1 pair light pants for wearing at the lodge
  • 2 warm shirts (fleece or wool)
  • 2 lightweight shirts for wearing at the lodge
  • 4 wicking type t-shirts
  • 3 pair wool or thermax socks
  • 4 pair of liner socks
  • 1 pair breathable or neoprene chest waders (hip waders okay)
  • 1 pair light hunting or hiking boots
  • 1 pair water proof gloves
  • 1 pair wool or fleece gloves
  • 1 rain coat and pants such as Helly Hansen Impertech
  • 1 set long underwear (under Armor recommended)
  • 1 warm, waterproof hat with ear covers   
  • 1 pair camp shoes such as sneakers
  • 1 warm, fleece coat with wind stopper
  • 1 balaclava (pull over hat), fleece or wind stopper
  • 1 fleece or down vest


  • Water bottle
  • Band aids
  • Any medications you may need (over the counter, prescription)


  • Camera and film
  • Small flashlight
  • *1 spinning fishing rod – 4 lb. to 8 lb.
  • *1 casting fishing rod (medium/heavy)  – 8 lb. to 15 lb.
  • Assorted lures – 1/2 oz. to 1 oz. bright colored (orange, pink, & red) pixies and Mepps type spinners and spoons
  • Fly Fishermen: 2 – 6 lb. to 8lb. rods (call on flies and patterns)
  • 1 Roll of Duct tape

*Spinning and Casting Rod loaners are available if you prefer not to bring yours.

*We do NOT have Fly fishing rods available as loaners.




  • Rods: 8 to 9 wt. traditional or switch, something that you can throw big flies and
    heavy lines with in the wind.
  • Lines: Floating or sinking. Top water opportunities do present themselves from
    time to time but most fish will be caught sub surface so getting down is nice but
    floating line with sinking leader works just fine.
  • Flies: Articulated leaches and streamers in pink, purple, chartreuse, blue, black
    etc. Sizes 1/0 to 4. Have a handful of top water flies for ideal conditions. These
    fish seem to lean towards pinks (think roe colored) and chartreuses but they can
    get a different color stuck in their head everyday so bring a variety. Some
    favorites are:

    • Trailer Trash (in pink and chartreuse)
    • Aleutian Queen
    • Hickman’s Party Boy
    • Green Death
    • Popsicles


T-14 can help get any line down to a fish. Having two rods rigged is
handy for quick switches not to mention the spare factor. Leave rusty hooks and
tapered leaders home: our idea of tippet is 10 to 12 lb. maxima. Anyone who
brings a sharkskin line will be expected to bring their guide extra beer.



  • Rods: 6 weight minimum, for the wind factor if nothing else.
  • Lines: Mostly floating, intermediate sinking is not a bad idea if you’re brining two.
  • Flies: Depending on the time of year, small streamers (size 4 to 8, variety of
    colors) or egg patterns.
  • Beads are hard to beat when the salmon are spawning.


  • Toothpicks (make sure they fit your beads).
  • Beads.
  • Split shot
  • Indicators
  • Egg hooks (Gamakatsu egg hook size 10 is tough enough to land a sliver but small enough for a grayling).


  • We will fillet, vacuum pack & freeze all fish for the trip home.
  • Waxed boxes are provided at no charge.
  • If you want to bring in coolers limit the size to under 50 quarts.

Many people buy online such remedies like Viagra. What doctors talk about generic cialis online or Generic Cialis? It is also known as Sildenafil. Whereas erectile dysfunction is more common among older men, that doesn’t make it “normal”. Sexual health is an momentous part of a man’s life. The person that lacks sexual desire generally won’t want to initiate the sexual relation. Low will isn’t the same as erectile dysfunction, but a lot of the same factors that stifle an erection can also reduce your libido. Keep reading for a list of medicines that can cause problems in bed and what you can do to prevent unwanted side effects. Causes of sexual dysfunction include nerve disorders.
