This is the Place!!! I just returned from a once in a lifetime Alaska trip, with Chuck Reed of Kentucky Wounded Heroes. Everything was unbelievably beautiful and indescribable. Our group fished and toured Alaska for two weeks. KWH was able to stay at Salmon Catcher Lodge in Kenai. I was astonished with the amenities. Salmon Catcher Lodge is owned by Terry Johnson. Salmon Catcher Lodge boast big spacious log lodging on a campus size area. The lodges are set up for several guests. The lodge I stayed in, was clean, spacious and had any amenity you could ask for. Eight people stayed in this spacious lodge, but it could of easily handled more. I was very impressed when I visited the Salmon Cather’s spacious gym facilities. Sauna, jacuzzi, massage chairs, weights and exercise equipment was clean, sanitized and new. Kentucky Wounded Heroes, just wanted to say thanks to Terry and all the good people at Salmon Catcher Lodge, for an unbelievably great stay. I can never properly express our gratitude. Thank You Friends! I would encourage anyone wanting to stay in Kenai or surrounding areas, to look at Salmon Catcher Lodge first. Nothing else will measure up to this place!

Awesome place to stay! Cabins were clean, spacious and beautiful. Terry and his wife were great to deal with and helpful with getting checked in and organizing a salmon charter. The cabins came very well furnished. The fishing guide they booked us with was the best I’ve ever had!! We highly recommend Salmon Catcher Lodge and would stay there again.

The owner and his family were immersed in the day-to-day services as the virus had caused about 1/3 of this year's clients to re-schedule to 2021. Did 6 fishing charters thru the lodge -- 3 on the Kenai for Sockeye, 1 at Seward for Halibut and 2 fly-ins to Kustatan river for Coho. My wife and I pretty much limited-out on our catches each day. The arrangements were well planned and the guides were exceptionally friendly. The guided river pick-ups were just several minutes from the lodge. My wife is not a seasoned fisherman, but the aid, instruction and attention took care of all of that....maybe I should have listened closer as she out-fished me most days! The lodge processed and packaged all our catches (168 lbs of filets). The lodge is recently constructed log units, well spaced for privacy and the daily housekeeping was great. A common fitness center was huge. We loved the "olympic size" sauna and hot tub especially after some of the cooler/rainier days on the water! Two articulating/vibrating chairs like you see in the airports were fanatastic on our 67 year-old bodies. On the 1st night had a moose meander right by the front deck....wasn't 10 ft away, didn't seemed a bit concerned by us...got some great pictures We saw the lodge as 1st class and are likely to return on our next trip to Alaska. The owner (Terry Johnson) and his wife (Angie) were accommodating at every opportunity. You often get what you pay for and this lodge is definitely worth the premium!!

We visited for the first time - and even in these crazy times with Covid effecting everyone - our stay was beyond our expectations!! Terry and Angie made our stay the best ever- with extra work for them switching our trips around because fishing charters cancelled, taking care of processing our fish (and we caught a lot!!!) and managing the Lodge- we had a cabin nestled in the trees that added to our love for this place. Salmon Catcher Lodge is worth every penny!!!

Our experience will be one of the most memorable trips of a lifetime! Terry planned our excursions perfectly and each trip was unforgettable. The day trips themselves were so well planned, and unique that it was difficult to choose a favorite. Each fishing trip in itself could have been a vacation in itself. The guides for the fishing trips were the BEST!! Each day brought a new adventure with the most pristine scenery and amazing views. All the guides were friendly and so much fun to be around. They were knowledgeable and very experienced making the novice fisherman feel confident. We chose 4 different trips, and each one was amazing. I highly recommend having Terry set up your trips, as his guides make the trip stress free so all you do is enjoy the adventures. Terry's staff was amazing!! We fixed our own breakfast and lunches, and had dinner prepared for us. This was the perfect end to our daily trips. Terry's wife made sure our meals were perfect, and even helped us celebrate a birthday by buying flowers, birthday presents, and decorating. Angie was kind enough to prepare separate meals as I have dietary restrictions. The lodge itself was picturesque and perfect! It is located close enough to Soldotna to grocery shop with a good selection of stores and off the busy road to provide quiet relaxation. The hot tub was a nice ending to a busy day. All in all, this vacation was the trip of a lifetime, and one that won't be forgotten. We would never have been able to have this without Terry and the Salmon Catcher Lodge!
