From Spin Fishing to Equipment: FAQs from Michael

We’ve talked plenty about the experience at Alaska Rainbow Lodge, but maybe you’ve still got some questions you want answered before you book your trip. Here are my answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions.

Q: Can I spin fish at Alaska Rainbow Lodge?
Absolutely! Almost everyone will use both fly-fishing and spin fishing during their visit. Lots of our guests will only spin fish. If you are a classic spin fisherman, this is your lodge.

Q: What if I don’t know much about fly-fishing?
A: If you want to learn how to fly fish, our guides can really help. With about 30 minutes of instruction and practice, you’ll experience what it’s like to catch Salmon and Rainbows on a fly rod. (You’ll catch fish on a fly rod—even practicing.) But if you’d rather spin fish, the choice is always yours, every day.

Q: Should I bring my own equipment?
A: Our spin fishing equipment here at the lodge is about as good as it gets. With top-of-the-line Shimano rods and reels, you can leave your favorite rigs at home, use ours, and never miss your equipment. But feel free to bring your equipment if you want.

Q: When’s the best time to book a trip to Alaska Rainbow Lodge?
A: June and July are amazing at the lodge. August weather can be great, but June and July are our postcard months. And the fishing is world-class stuff.

Our job here at Alaska Rainbow Lodge is to deliver you to the world’s greatest Salmon and Rainbow habitats and help you catch these beauties. The only thing we care about is that you have the time of your life. So grab your spinning gear, and come to Alaska Rainbow Lodge.
