The SalmonCatcher Lodge in Kenai, Alaska is absolutely world class! My brother and I were able to spend five terrific days with Terry and team during the second week of Jul. Owner Terry Johnson’s customer service, coordination and support to arrange multiple guided fishing trips were perfect. We had four different outstanding, capable guides on four different rivers, including a... More

We have spent 2 excellent nights as a couple at the Grizzly Den suite. We had everything we needed ( well-equipped kitchen, big bathroom, spacious living room) and a great host - who offered us fish to fry in one evening. In addition, Terry has cut and froze the fish we caught during one afternoon trip - although the fishing... More

We had booked a Deluxe King Suite for 2 nights in March via Booking.com. We received a phone call from the owner around 1pm on the day of arrival to ask if we were coming to the property. We said we were half an hour away and the owner said no problem, come straight here. When we arrived the cleaner... More

First of all i would like to say there has been an ongoing dialogue with this customer through Booking.com for the last 3 weeks. They have demanded a refund after staying at our place. I would like to address their claims as some are valid and explain their posting of this review even though they booked there room through Booking.com.... More

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

Thank you Sam for your kind words. At Salmon Catcher Lodge we put our guests above profit. I believe this is the foundation that this Country was built on. I too travel and have had a couple of vacations over the last year and am cognizant of leaving and feeling satisfied that you got what you paid for. We stand... 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

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...

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.
