To read an article on Salmon Catcher Lodge from Sportsman’s News.
People visit the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska to capitalize on the diversity of fishing and outdoor opportunities it provides. No other place around provides so many different kinds of fishing to accommodate all sorts of anglers. If you enjoy river fishing, the Kenai River is home to some of the largest King Salmon ever caught and touts a Sockeye Salmon run that approaches nearly a million returning fish each and every year. The Cook Inlet is a great place to pull those tasty halibut from the deep waters and the small town of Seward is just a short trip away and it provides a very diverse ocean fishing adventure as well. Huge Rainbow trout follow the Salmon up the rivers and grow to giant proportion with the vast amount of food and 25 plus inch fish are the norm. This is why people come to the Kenai Peninsula and Terry and Angie Johnson have put together one of the best operations in the area.
Terry spent his entire working career as a pilot where attention to detail kept him alive and in the air. He and his wife have applied this same attention to detail into their operation. This operation consists of two different lodging opportunities. The first is the B&B situated on the banks of the Kenai River. This multi-million dollar log home lacks nothing in amenities and can be your home away from home for your trip to the peninsula. The lodge is located several miles away and provides individual cabins to accommodate large or small groups. No expense was spared on these first class cabins as well. The staff is knowledgeable and extremely friendly when you have your experiences with them around the facility. The fish processing is some of the cleanest and most organized I’ve ever had the chance to experience in all of my visits to Alaska.
Due to the broadness of the Kenai Peninsula, it is nearly impossible to have boats and guides to cover all the different types of fishing available. Nearly everyone contracts out their fishing which is the case with Salmon Catcher Lodge, but Terry has aligned himself with the very best in the business. Every one of our fishing adventures was first class and with guys willing to go the extra mile to make sure we had a great time and got the experience we paid for and more.
This is definitely a place I would recommend to anyone looking for a lot of diversity in their fishing desires as well as some upper scale lodging. The Kenai Peninsula seems to be a place where everyone is looking for rock bottom pricing, but the few hundred dollars discount you might get elsewhere is going to be paid for in the end by either extra dollars out of your own pocket later or by a bad experience. The Salmon Catcher Lodge is a few dollars more, but worth every penny. You won’t regret a visit to this first class operation. – written by Michael Deming
