Alagnak Lodge: Guide Position Available
We fish almost entirely near our wilderness lodge located on a fresh water navigable river and therefore a USCG OUPV 6 passenger license or greater is required. The boats are 18’ welded aluminum flat bottom powered by 40hp Yamaha props.
Guides must be proficient in all aspects of fly and spin fishing and able to instruct as part of their job. We are not looking for the best fisherman, we are looking for guides that pay close attention to their clients and their wants and needs and work well within the guiding team to deliver a satisfying experience for all the clients.
We operate all of July and August 7 days a week. We generally fish 2 clients to a boat, but it can be 3 at times. You may guide up to 2 sessions @ 5 hour per day. You are paid for each day at the lodge. On days you do not guide you will be assigned up to 6 hours of camp work.
The monthly base salary for novice guides is $2,500 per month and experienced guides receive $2,700 per month. The manager makes the client assignments. A novice will likely receive less client guiding opportunities than experienced guides. Tips are not pooled. Many of the clients participate in the prepaid tips at $25 per client per session. We are where the fish are and fishing success often leads to better tips,
Transportation to and from your home is provided as is food and lodging. There are 12 rooms for staff housing, so a few will share rooms. Dinning is buffet style with the clients. The lodge supplies the gear and equipment for clients, Guides provide their personal gear plus anything they feel must be in their boats at all times.
