This fishing trip was a repeat for me. I took my oldest grandson with me this time to give him an adventure to remember. My trip last year was great, and I hoped that it would be nearly as good for my grandson. Boy, was I wrong! It was even better! From the best of the best lodge managers, the... More

Was at Jimmie Jack's August 7 thru August 15 for a fishing expedition. The lodge is 2 stories with great rooms on both levels and the upper level has a full kitchen for guests to use if they so desire. Each of the great rooms has a tv, magazines and books. Outside are grills for cooking your catch, a patio... More

Jimmie Jack made sure my first trip to Alaska was amazing. Going with the Silver Combo Package was great because we got to do several different types of fishing both in the Kenai river and ocean and were able to see much of the Kenai peninsula. The guides were all very knowledgeable and excellent hosts. They made sure we had... More

Two days of epic fishing: Day one was on the lower Kenai. We started the morning with a late sunrise worthy of a canvas. Scott put us on a salmon superhighway that caused all four of us to limit out by 10am. I think we were the earliest boat back to shore by a longshot, and we were followed by... More

This is not really a review on Jimmy Jack's Lodge but rather a review of Jimmy Jack Fishing, a fishing guide service run by the same Jimmy Jack. After a pair of very lean days fishing for Silver (AKA Coho) Salmon, off drift boats in the Kasilof River we decided to give the Kenai River a try on Saturday, the... More

Jimmie Jack's was top notch from top to bottom. The lodging was great. We stayed in the Trapper's cabin, a secluded peaceful spot to relax after a busy day fishing. The continental breakfast was incredible consisting of pancakes, waffles, biscuits and gravy, eggs, and sausage served hot and ready for you every morning. We nailed the fish on 2 of... More

This fishing trip was on our Bucket List and it far exceed our expectations! My wife and I traveled to Jimmie Jacks Fishing Lodge with another couple - all of us in our 70's with no fishing experience. We wanted first-class accommodations with private bedrooms and bathrooms. Jimmie Jacks had just the facilities - a suite with 2 bedrooms and... More

A complete waste of time and money. Early run salmon are subject to river counts by wild life and fisheries that are not explained by Jimmie Jacks when booking. The early runs are fishing without bait!!! My trip as a solo booking on the Kasilof river. I was placed on a boat with 3 women with the rest of their... More

JimmiJack, Owner at Jimmie Jack's Alaska Lodge, responded to this review

I am sorry that this guest had a less than excellent experience. We always aim to reach our standard of excellence, and in this case, we fell short. All salmon runs in Alaska are subject to changes at any time by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. In this case we were regulated to fish the Kasilof River with... More
