In just a few short months, the Alaska fishing season at Big Salmon Lodge will be in full swing, and we can’t wait to host a new set of travelers. An Alaska vacation is a bucket list item for many outdoor enthusiasts, so taking the time to make sure everything is in order can feel like a tall task. However, those who don’t take the time to plan thoroughly will undoubtedly tell you they wish they had. Because the waters near Sitka, Alaska, are some of the most productive seas in the region, we’re willing to bet you won’t be the only angler hoping for a taste of the “Last Frontier.” As such, making reservations for your Alaska vacation is paramount to securing the dates you wish to be here. 

Financial Planning and Getting the Dates You Want

The last thing you want is to get excited about your trip only to find out you need to wait another year to go! Mindful travel planning starts with booking your accommodations as soon as possible. Additionally, one of the most forgotten aspects of most Alaska vacations is the deposit. It’s astonishing how many people overlook the need to include a security deposit in their travel budget. Booking your trip now will streamline the planning process and give you more time to plan financially. 

Paid Time Off and Vacations Days

Although many anglers and other outdoor enthusiasts have tirelessly secured the right to take days off at a moment’s notice or have achieved sweet retirement, not everyone is in the same boat. Most employers require at least two weeks’ notice for an extended vacation, so booking soon will allow you to notify your team of when you’ll be absent. Reserving your dates several months in advance may seem like overkill, but you won’t be thinking that on your Alaska vacation!


At a glance, transportation seems like one of the most straightforward aspects of an Alaska vacation. All you have to do is go to the airport, get on a plane, and next thing you know, you’ll be fishing in Sitka, right? Depending on where you reside, there is a good chance you’ll be flying into Alaska. If so, you’ll save money on buying plane tickets well in advance. The good news is we’ll take care of you every step of the way once we pick you up from town.
