Event Description: This event has been cancelled.
Have you ever wanted to fish Alaska? I am sponsoring a Tag Along Fishing Trip to Prince of Wales Island in South East Alaska. The trip will be at Mike and Sarah Warner's, Coffman Cove Adventures. We will plan to arrive at Prince of Wales on August 28th and depart on September 5th.
Mike is holding seven spots open for us until after the March meeting. If interested sign up on line or call me and bring a $700 check (no credit cards) made out to TVFF to the next meeting.
Coffman Cove is located near two dozen rivers within 5-90 minutes from the cabins and each offers something different to anglers. Depending on the river, we will be fishing for Coho, Pink or some Sockeye Salmon or Sea Run Cutthroat, Rainbow or Dolly Varden Trout. Each fishing group will have a private cabin(s) with full access to the amenities of the dining cabin.
The down payment cost of $700 is required at the next meeting (with the remaining $700 final payment due at the lodge), and includes the package below, with the group use of a vehicle (fuel paid for by guest). This is a great trip for people looking for amazing river action.
During the time we are there, it is expected that the rivers will have Coho, Pinks and some Sockeye Salmon as well as Sea Run Cutthroats, Rainbows and Dolly Varden Trout.
Included in this package:
- 7 nights lodging/6 days fishing
- 3 home-style meals per day with a sack lunch
- Fish cleaning and packaging with 2 fish boxes for transportation
- Use of a vehicle
- Transportation from the ferry or any float plane base on the island
- Transportation to and from Prince of Wales Island
- Alcoholic beverages or soda
- Fishing licenses

- Extra fish boxes $35
Cabins - During your stay with Mike and Sarah you will be staying in one of two clean comfortable two bedroom cabins. The Squirrels Nest and the Robins Nest both offer a private bathroom, two bedrooms, and a living area for relaxing or gear storage. A queen bed or full/twin bunks provide sleeping arrangements based on the makeup of your party. Coffman Cove Adventures can accommodate up to 7 guests in the 2 cabins but can have groups of up to 9 if all are in one party. Both cabins overlook a beautiful Southeast Alaska muskeg which has regular visits by deer, mink, marten, and eagles. All linens are provided and laundry facilities are available in the Dining Cabin. Cabins also have DirectTV and wireless internet.
Dining Cabin - Breakfasts and dinners are served in the Dining Cabin. A sack lunch is also provided for your day of adventure on Prince of Wales. Breakfast will be served at the time of your choosing. For those on the run, quick meals such as oatmeal, cereal, fruit or toast are provided. For those who enjoy a hearty breakfast, we will provide a filling ‘farmer style’ breakfast. Dinner is also cooked around your schedule including fabulous home-style meals and desserts. Only one rule: no diets at Coffman Cove Adventures!
The Dining Cabin also has laundry facilities, TV/DVD, wireless internet, living area, and gas fireplace making it a great place to relax after your day of adventure.

TVFF Cancellation Policy:
To sign-up for a TVFF Event that is currently open for registration and chargeable (as set by the Fishmeister), you must both register and pay online, or via check or cash, within two weeks of registering (sent to the TVFF Treasurer) whatever fee is described for that particular Event (trip) at the time of registration. There may be multiple payments required before the trip is actually taken (usually in the case of expensive trips), but it is necessary that you do make payment in the above timely fashion for the initial amount to secure your position on the trip. However, please note that you are still responsible for the entire amount of the trip if you should need to cancel.
Once you are registered, there are no refunds for chargeable Events and trips. In the situation that a member is, for any reason unable to attend, they may resell their registration slot to another TVFF member (by first pulling from the waitlist if one exists). New participants must come first from the waitlist in the order they signed up. The member cancelling is fully and solely responsible for contacting potential members to replace them and notifying the appropriate Fishmeister.
If an event/trip is fully registered and closed to registration, you may still sign up on the Wait List to be notified if there are any cancellations. In such a case of registering provisionally on the Wait List, you do not have to pay until such time that you clear the Wait List and are confirmed for participation.
