Service and Aircraft
Newhalen Lodge owns five aircraft, three on floats and two on wheels. We monitor hundreds of miles of streams, flying you daily to the best producing waters. These planes are available to take guests to exceptional fishing locations daily. In some places the plane stays with you all day, thus providing flexibility of location. Sometimes you may fish two or more streams per day.
Our experienced pilots have thousands of hours of Alaska airtime and serve as knowledgeable guides. We have enough planes and equipment to avoid double tripping. Newhalen Lodge only hires highly experienced guides. Most of our guides have been with the lodge for several years thus increasing their familiarity with the streams and rivers in the Bristol Bay area.
Our professional guides will accompany you at all times. They will assist you with fly or lure selection, fishing techniques and often prepare a delicious shore lunch featuring fresh fish.
We also have more than three dozen jet boats and rafts on the top streams throughout the Bristol Bay – Iliamna watershed. Some days you are flown into a fiver then transported by jet boat or day float through pristine wilderness enjoying excellent fishing as well as scenery.
