An expert in Rivers Inlet

Black gold is the lowest priced lodge in RI. I was a guide for Salmon King Lodge for three straight summers. The issue with Black Gold, Sportsman, and big springs is they do not have sufficient boats with big power on the back. Therefore they can’t travel very far. There boats consist of more aluminum lake boats and when the water gets rough they have to hide. Place like Bucks, Salmon King, Wadhams, and King Salmon they can travel the big inlet and can go to the fish. Black Gold is at the mouth of Rivers Inlet and fishing is only good between the middle of July to middle/end of august. Black Gold lodge is floating wood cabins and is unique. If you’re going to spend the $1800 for 4 days I would recommend to spend a few more bills and try the other facilities. Salmon King is the top end lodge but is the most expensive at $2500 for 4 days. Bucks is more intimate and only holds very few guests. If you want to go on a fishing trip I highly recommend Rivers inlet as they get the big fish on average the largest Spring I saw was 90lb and my personnel best was 65lbs. You want to go to a lodge that can travel to both the mouth and the head in a single day. My reason for looking for this as the morning bit in August is at the head and in the afternoon going over to Calvert island to get some halibut. If you want more info let me know. I love Rivers. There is so much to see there. Lots of different water. You have to check out drainy inlet.
