Download our handy Alaska packing list for your fishing trip to Nushagak River Adventures Lodge. This handy list will help you keep track of exactly what you need to bring to Fish The Nush this summer.
When it comes to packing for a remote trip in Alaska you want to try to keep your bags as light as possible while still bringing the most crucial items. Try to pull double duty as often as you can. Make sure to bring quality rain gear with a completely waterproof fabric like GORE-TEX. It will also help cut the wind. As you may know. the temperatures on the Nushagak can vary greatly in June, July and August when you’d be here. 40- to 60°F is a common daytime temperature range during the fishing season in Bristol Bay, Alaska. That is why layering under your outerwear will be critical. Starting with a base layer set of long underwear, adding a mid layer with more wind resistance, and for some another heavy outer layer will be necessary depending on whether you run hot or cold.
The nice thing is you are not too far from the lodge and we always take care of the well-being of people first, it sure would be a bummer for you and your group to have to take time out from some hot fishing action because your gear fails. Quality rubber boots, preferably insulated, like those made by Xtratuf or Grundens are a must have for fishing over a good pair (or two) of wool socks. You just don’t want your socks and boots to be too tight because airflow is a factor in a good system to keep your feet warm.
