Where can I get a fishing license?
You may purchase fishing licenses and King stamps here at Big Sky. Or, visit Alaska Department of Fish and Game to purchase your fishing license online.
Do you process all of our fish?
Yes, for $1.40 / lb, dressed weight, Big Sky will fillet, clean, vacuum pack, and freeze your catch. At the end of your stay, we will package your fish in insulated boxes for traveling home.
What is the weather like?
During the summer, the temperature often ranges between 55-70 degrees. We strongly encourage guests to bring adequate layers, as the mornings are often chilly and as the day goes on it gets warmer.
Do I need rain gear?
As the weather is unpredictable, and can often change on short notice, it is a good idea to bring adequate rain gear for your Alaska adventure. Each of our boats has ample space to store extra clothes if they are not needed!
How do I get there?
Big Sky Charter and Fishcamp is approximately 2.5-3 hours southwest of Anchorage. Use the following directions to reach camp from the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage.
Do I need to bring my own fishing gear?
No, Big Sky will provide all of the necessary fishing equipment on each of your guided charters. We also have fishing rods, reels, and tackle for use of our guests for shore fishing from camp.
Can I fish from shore at camp?
Absolutely! With about 400ft of riverfront, we have great shore fishing opportunities for salmon, trout, and Dolly Varden.
