Alaska. The state has become synonymous with incredible fishing, beautiful natural scenes, and unmatched tranquility. However, when it comes to lodging, few choose to describe The Last Frontier as a “luxurious” destination.
The people who have visited Salmon Catcher Lodge seem to have a different opinion. Located in Kenai, Alaska, this secluded sanctuary offers an unparalleled fishing experience while also providing lodging options with a host of amenities.
Fishing comes above all at this lodge. Showcasing a number of fishing packages, anglers can catch a variety of trophies throughout the year. And, the fish that reigns supreme is the King Salmon. Generally ranging from 25 to 50 pounds, these enormous salmon will make it a fish fight to remember. In fact, the world-record King Salmon, weighing in at 97 pounds and four ounces, was caught in the Kenai River.
If you’re searching for another species of salmon, this resort won’t disappoint. Catch Red Salmon or a slew of Silver Salmon. If you want to battle a behemoth fish, test your skill against 20- to 100- pound halibut. You’ll be fully prepared, as the lodge provides fully guided fishing and all equipment.
Fly-out fishing trips showcase the unforgettable scenery. Fly over the breathtaking glaciers, mountains, lakes, creeks, and rivers in a float plane before landing for a closer look at the wildlife. Eagles, black bears, brown bears, and moose dot the landscape on your expertly guided trip.
After you’ve caught your limit, relax in your luxurious lodging. A 6,300-square-foot bed and breakfast and one- to four-bedroom units prove that rustic can be refined. Full kitchens allow you to prepare the catch of the day while outdoor grills, handmade picnic tables, and a firepit are the perfect places to swap fish stories.
The luxury continues at the resort’s convention center, which features two big-screen televisions and a fireplace. Groups of 15 or more can be served by a private catering company.
A large part of being one of the best is giving back. That’s why the resort has been a generous contributor to The Kentucky National Guard, The Wounded Warriors of Kentucky, and The Outdoor Dream Foundation for several years. In fact, the lodge provides a discount for Wounded Warriors and United States of America First Responders.
Offering unforgettable fishing expeditions, breathtaking natural beauty, elegant cottages, and a range of amenities, Salmon Catcher Lodge combines fantastic fishing and luxurious lodging.
