How To Get There
Your trip starts upon arrival at Anchorage’s Ted Stevens International Airport (ANC). Several major airlines serve Alaska from the Lower 48 with connections direct to Anchorage. From there, you will fly to King Salmon, Alaska.
We recommend that guests overnight in Anchorage the day before a trip begins and then connect to King Salmon the following day. Anglers can potentially fly all the way out to King Salmon in one day depending on their airport of origin.
Photo identification is required by airlines to purchase your Alaska Fishing License. Licenses can be purchased on the first day of your trip or online before your trip by visiting this website: Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
