Arrival day:

ARRIVAL INTO Anchorage:
Most guests arrive on Saturday and spend the night in Anchorage. It is good to get a hotel with an airport shuttle. Some guests can make it to Anchorage on time to meet the Iliamna Air Taxi flight on Sunday morning. Please give yourself a couple hours to transfer from a commercial flight to your Iliamna Air Taxi flight.

Sunday depart from Anchorage with Iliamna Air Taxi at 9:30 am. PLEASE NOTE THAT ILIAMNA AIR TAXI IS NOT IN THE MAIN AIRPORT. IT IS LOCATED IN THE SIGNATURE AIR TERMINAL LOCATED IN THE AIR CARGO SECTION OF THE AIRPORT. Your hotel shuttle will most likely know the location. There is a combined 70lb baggage limit.

Upon arrival in Iliamna you will be transferred to the airport. Iliamna Air Taxi also does the floatplane shuttle to the lodge, so please just follow their lead. If you have questions just ask anyone at the desk and tell them you are with the Copper River Lodge.

After roughly 45 minutes in Iliamna you will be transferred to the float plane near the airport with Iliamna Air Taxi’s van. You will then be flown to the Copper River Lodge in Dehavilland Beaver.

Arrival to the Lodge:

The guides will meet you at the plane with our boats and transfer you to the lodge. This is a 5 minute boat ride so keep your jacket out if it is a rainy day. Upon arrival at the lodge you will unpack, eat some lunch, and get your fishing gear ready. As soon as you are ready our guides will go fishing with you. This is still a big day of fishing as you will fish till 7pm.

Monday through Friday you will fish all day. Usually breakfast is at 8 am and departure is at 9 am. You will fish until 7pm. Please note that this schedule can change depending on when the best fishing is.

Departure Day:

On Saturday you can get some fishing in if you still need to catch a few fish. You can usually fish for 3 hours on Saturday. You will have lunch and then depart on the floatplane at roughly 1:30pm. This gets you to Iliamna in time for the 3 pm flight to Anchorage. You will arrive in Anchorage at 4 pm. Please give yourself 2 hours between your arrival and departure from Anchorage.
