Terry and his staff does an excellent job in giving his guests the ultimate Alaskan experience. Orca and Grey Whales, Puffins, beside the boat while you fish. Watch out for Brown Bears while you drift boat fish for wild salmon. Fly out around a smoking volcanic mountain, then down close to a glacier. Catch more fish in a day than... More

This place is great! A little bit outside of town, but has all the amenities you can ask for. Nice bed, Full Kitchen, WiFi, Pleny of Seating, Full bathroom, TV, DirecTV, and plenty of storage. The road is quite slick in the winter, you will need at least FWD more likely 4WD.

I stayed at the Salmon Catcher back in July with my father. I've waited a couple of months to write a review so that I could be fair and balanced without emotion. I titled this "Vigilant" because you need to pay attention if you're going to stay here. The owner means well, talks a blue streak, but doesn't necessarily remember... More

First and foremost i would like to apologize to this guest. We never like to hear that we have made mistakes. We did in fact receive a signed copy of our contract which I instructed the guest to fill in the blanks on fishing and days to fish. I had put on the contract conference center 2 when the guest...

Visited SCL in early September 2015. Very impressed with facilities, staff and owner. Terry was constantly trying to see what he could do to meet our trip expectations. He made all side trip arrangements and provided excellent recommendations. Went to Homer for Halibut, Crescent Lake for salmon and bear and fished on the Kenai for trout and salmon. Terry visited...

Exceptional experience from start to finish: accommodations, excursions, hospitality. Terry and team took care of our every need... including an unexpected medical visit. They even brought us a get-well care package! Great rooms, grounds and location. The day trips they booked for us were with top guides who also know how to deliver a quality experience. And at the end... More

This facility is ideally located for easy access by auto, plane or boat to a variety of day trips. We had a day of halibut fishing, four different types of salmon fishing, and a day of rainbow trout, with success on every trip. The lodge arranged all guided trips in advance, ensuring the quality of the guides and the odds... More
