BEFORE YOU COME

Medical Facilities

All guests have the responsibility to disclose any kind of special medical, physical or dietary needs to the Lodge ahead of time in order to facilitate an enjoyable excursion. The Lodge will make every effort to ensure your safety while you are a guest at the Lodge; however, outdoor activities of this nature are not entirely without risk. The Lodge recommends investing in travel insurance.

Clothing

Pack light, warm and windproof clothing. Those visiting us in the late season can count on cold mornings and evenings. Wind bloc and Wind Stopper fleece products are very good and when combined with breathable waders and jacket, offer superior protection that will keep you warm and comfortable all day. Prepare to dress in layers. Remember your sunscreen and polarized sunglasses!

Gratuities

The lodge recommends 7% to 10% of the lodge rate as total tip for the program's guides and staff. Guides generally fish an 8-hour day, but they will cater to the serious angler who fishes longer hours; in this case guide tips should be adjusted accordingly

*Prices subject to change. Due to the extreme increase in the cost of fuel, prices are subject to change without notice.

Currencies

US dollars are welcomed at the Lodge for gratuities and additional services at the Lodge (telephone calls, internet, laundry, etc.) The Lodge also accepts traveler’s checks and personal checks.
