    Default Lakes With Float-Plane fuel

    Let us list common float-plane lakes and bases with fuel or lack thereof.

    Beluga Lake in Homer: No Fuel sales. Must be jerry jugged from the airport. Weird for a busy lake.

    Kenai Airport Float Pond (ditch) : Av gas via credit card machine near west end between trans and paid moorings.
    It only sells so much at a time and requires two or three sessions to fill your plane.



    Ok What others........????

    Probably the lagoon at Iliamna still gets delivery by fuel truck . . .
    The lake east of Talkeetna, by truck.
    Big Lake, on the dock.
    Lake Louise, on the dock at Evergreen Lodge (if it's still in operation).
    The lodge at Aleknagik Lake, south end (Aleknagik Lodge) upstream from Dillingham.

    These are old, but should still be in service.

    It would help to put hours of operation of contact info if known. I know Moody's at Lake Alegnagik is closed now.

    King Salmon -- Katmai Air has fuel on the river. Don't know the number off the top of my head. I am pretty sure Egli Air haul would come down to the river and fill you up for a fee. (907) 246-3554.

    Port Alsworth -- The Farm Lodge at 888-440-2281

    I've never known Katmai Air to not have fuel available on the river during the summer months. Occasionally, I've seen planes have to wait for space on the dock, but you can talk to them on 130.1 and they'll let you know if you might have to hang for a bit.
