Our stay at Red Fish Lodge was excellent. The cabins were clean and supplied well. It was great to have a kitchen as well as the grill outside. Staff went above and beyond to be sure our needs were met. We came as guests and left as friends. You will definitely see us again.

Booked a trip to Alaska over the July 4th week. This being our first trip to Alaska, I found a great travel agent in Anchorage (Charlene's Express Travel). We only had one day to fish on the Kenai Peninsula, so the travel agent recommended the Redfish Lodge. We took the 2.5 hour drive from Anchorage and met Steve, the owner... More

My wife and I stayed at Steve's place for 5 nights in June with our two adult sons. Steve and his mother Marcia made us feel right at home (his wife was visting her family) and worked hard to help us enjoy fishing in the area. We fished the Russian River with equipment all supplied by the lodge. They also... More

My partner Paul found the Redfish Lodge listed in Purpleroofs, the Alaska gay travel resource. There aren't many openly gay friendly places on the Kenai peninisula iso we thougth we would give it a try. Not a luxury place for sure, and not for everyone, but it was a change of pace for us. Met some nice families. Some of... More

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Redfish and Steve and Leah (sp?) made us feel like family. I stayed 6 nights with 3 buddies and used Redfish as our "base of fishing operations". The bottom line for us is that Redfish gives us all we need for our Alaska fishing adventures and they are always so helpful... More

Our group of 13 stayed at Redfish for 8 nights starting August 2. Redfish is in a central location and easy to get to. We were looking for somewhere that was managable for us, age range of 10 to 76, as this was our first trip to Alaska. We found everyone to be very friendly and accomodating with our many... More

Hi Steve and Family! We can't thank you enough for all of your hospitality during our short stay in Sterling a couple weeks ago. Despite the lack of fish caught during our stay, you surely went out of your way to assist our rookie fishermen! Notice that I am not including myself in that comment! Thank you for rearranging things... More

Steve & his crew/family run a great operation. The cabins were great, the staff accommodating, the guides were awesome and we really appreciated the use of equipment (tackle, hip boots & coolers). It's Alaska, not an urban drive thru with pillow chocolates. We also enjoyed Steve swinging by in the evenings to check up on us and the other guests.... More

My husband and I stayed at Redfish lodge for 9 nights. The cabin was spacious and well stocked, the bed very comfortable! We were there to fish and the location was perfect with many options for fishing the Kenai and Russian rivers and also some smaller creeks for trout! I am a bit picky when it comes to lodging as...

We had a nice quiet stay at the Redfish Lodge. We used it as a central location to go fishing from. The room had all we needed. We stayed for 2 nights and never got to meet the owner Steve. We only got to talk to their children. It rained the whole time so we did not get to enjoy... More
