Ouzel’s fishing trips in Alaska begin in Anchorage.

Spend the night in Anchorage the day before the trip. Try to arrive before 5:00 pm. If your bags don’t arrive with you they will generally get to Anchorage by midnight. If you arrive by midnight there’s a good chance you won’t get them till noon the next day. If you have an early flight to one of our jump off hubs like Bethel you may not have your bags by the time to fly into to river!

We recommend several hotels. Most people stay at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel: 800 314–0782 or 907–245–0322. They have free shuttle service to and from the airport and can store your suitcases for you while you’re on the river.  They are the best hotel in Anchorage close to the airport. It works well if everybody is staying at the same place. You don’t want to stay down town since it’s a long way to the airport.

We meet everyone at the courtyard Marriott hotel for our pre-trip meeting in the lobby at approximately 5 PM. After you get to your room give us a call our local number is 783-2216. This way we can make arrangements to meet you and the rest of the group. We will discuss the details of the trip and loan you our dry bags to use during the week with us.

Alaska trips depart from  Bethel, Dillingham, Fairbanks, Iliamna or King Salmon.
