Recommended Clothing

Please check the Sointula weather forecast before traveling to the lodge as temperature ranges can be quite extreme in the summer ranging from the high 30’s to 70’s Fahrenheit (2 to 20 Celsius). We recommend dressing in at least three layers while fishing in the morning:  t-shirt, long-sleeve shirt or sweatshirt, vest or fleece or light jacket over top. Thermal layers are good for keeping your legs warm in the morning, too. Warm socks and waterproof hiking boots are great footwear for the boat. Remember, you can always take clothes off later in the day as the sun rises, but often early morning temperatures are quite cool. The lodge provides warm float-coats, rubber pants and rubber boots for guests to use if you choose to not bring your own gear.  Warm gloves and a hat are a great idea, too. Our gift shop carries some articles of clothing if you need additional items.

Currency While Travelling in Canada

It is not necessary to bring Canadian cash since merchants receive VISA, MasterCard and AMEX as payment for purchases. Check with your credit card company for international transaction fees.
