Lodge

Lo­cated in Port Alsworth in Lake Clark Na­tional Park and Pre­serve, the Farm Lodge (the­farm­lodge. com) is a fam­ily-run out­fit that caters to fam­i­lies look­ing to mix fish­ing with wildlife view­ing and sight­see­ing. The cab­ins and lodge are new and very com­fort­able. The food is great, and the staff is wel­com­ing and friendly. Best of all, the pi­lots are some of the most ex­pe­ri­enced in Alaska. Waders

Good waders are key. The boys used Red­ing­ton Cross­wa­ter youth waders and Prowler boots.

Tackle

For spin­ning gear, we brought Fen­wick HMG travel rods and an as­sort­ment of Blue Fox Vi­brax spin­ners. For fly rods, we used a Sage X 7-weight and Red­ing­ton Preda­tor 8-weight for salmon and pike, and Thomas & Thomas Aeros 5-weights for grayling, trout, and char. We kept them un­harmed through many air miles in a Simms Bounty Hunter Rod Vault. Clothes

The weather was per­fect on our trip, but this is Alaska, so good raingear is key. We wore Ca­bela’s Guidewear and Huk Kryptek. The rest of our cloth­ing was by Browning (brown­inglifesty­le.com), a mix of flan­nels and fleeces that we could layer and that did dou­ble duty on the wa­ter and in the lodge.
