fleet of three float-equipped aircraft which allows for great flexibility in the daily fishing program.
Normally the evening before your fishing day, you will sit down with your guide and come up with a game plan. Your guide will fill you in on any special equipment you might need for the day and set a floatplane departure time. Of course, if the weather changes and does not allow you to execute on your pre-arranged plans, another fishery will be substituted. With little or no intrusion by other lodges, guides or outfitters within the park confines, you don't have to worry about getting to your spot first or a lack of options.
