Planning for an Affordable Alaska Fishing Trip.

  1. Take your time and plan ahead. Look into all the possibilities before settling on your trip.
  2. Contact more then one of each of your needed services and check for specials and discounts.
  3. Check for military or prior military discounts, these usually will reduce your costs by an additional 10%.
  4. Look for package deals from lodges, RV rental companies, RV Parks, fishing charters and such. Packages will usually reduce your overall costs while filling the needs of your fishing vacation.
  5. Renting a motorhome or roughing it in a tent can save big money when vacationing in Alaska and fishing in Alaska is no exception to this rule.
  6. Motorhome rentals can be found in a number of forms. There are the large Class A's and the more moderate Class C's but there are also a few campervan rentals available that might be something to look at if the costs are adjusted accordingly. Be sure to look into both commercial and private rentals to see what best suits your needs.
    1. As an RV owner ourselves, we really like the freedom of the Class C for traveling and fishing around Alaska. Having the refrigerator, freezer, microwave, stove/oven and a warm place to sleep is a big plus for us. It's like moving Alaska into your backyard and enjoying the best it has to offer without the need to really rough it.
  7. Try avoiding the most popular fishing destinations. These areas are fantastic fishing hotspots but due to their popularity they attract a disproportionate amount of fishermen.This popularity drives up the cost of everything from fishing lodges & cabins, local services and even camping. Instead, head to the less frequented areas like the Little Susitna, Talkeetna, Deshka Rivers or the Gulkana River on the Richardson Highway where great fishing can be had for less money.
  8. If you're trip is to include the Kenai River and you want to save money on your fishing trip, consider applying as many of the tips included here and you will be surprised at how affordable your trip will be.
