There is a lot that you don't have to bring! This is what we provide for you:
Airlines allow two checked bags not to exceed 50 pounds each, plus one carry-on and a computer bag. We suggest you plan on checking one bag for the arrival to Tower Rock Lodge so that you can fly home with a box of fish as your second checked bag!
Plan to layer clothing. Our summers are are often long and sunny, sometimes 20 hours of daylight, with average temperatures in the mid to upper 60's, with cool mornings and temperate evenings. It is cooler from mid-August to the end of September. A wool shirt and socks are always good. Late in the season, throw in an extra jacket!
Bring tennis or boat shoes - plan to spend a lot of time on the water! Throw in a pair of hiking boots if you intend to do a little bushwhacking.
Light rain gear just might come in handy anytime that you are in Alaska. The Kenai Peninsula averages about two inches per month during the summer. Often our guests like to pack a light set of raingear (golf-like). However, we do offer a pretty good inventory at the lodge if need be. And the one thing about Alaska weather that you can be sure of is that it's unpredictable.
Small day pack or tote bag can come in handy to stow gear for the excursions away from the lodge ie., halibut, fly-outs, Kasilof drift boat fishing, trips to Homer, etc.
Bring your camera and its charger. Bring sunscreen. Don't forget your personal fishing items like your baseball cap, sunglasses, bandanna, and lucky charm :)
We have some great convenience stores close by for liquor, cigars, and anything that you forgot!
