May 23rd Update
Let’s Go Fishing!!
We are at the lodge focusing on the important things in our lives; family, friends and fishing! This has been an exciting week in Alaska as Governor Dunleavy has announced Alaska is opening with just a few restrictions. The main restriction affecting us is the 14-day quarantine which is set to expire on June 2nd. The governor indicated that he is working with the Air Carriers Association and local airports to have screening protocols in place which will allow the restriction to expire on the 2nd (if not rescinded before).
With all these changes we wanted to let you know what we will be doing to keep you healthy and what we will ask you to do while at the lodge.
