This was a great experience. I have never done a “Fishing Trip” and I cannot express how great this place was. First of all I met Terry at the Phoenix Barrett Jackson show. Such a nice guy and he explained how everything worked. I got a group of guys together and booked a 5 day 4 night stay. The fishing was awesome. The guides they choose for us were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We caught over 200lbs of fish! The food at Salmon Catcher Lodge was superb. There chefs and kitchen staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had packed lunches for our fishing trips, and if needed hot grab and go breakfasts for our early morning guided trips. Dinners were like at a 5 star restaurant. From the salads to the deserts everything was great. Terry’s wife Angie was great very sweet and helpful from the booking process, fishing tour set up to check out. Nick and his wife were great as well. The cabins were great and head everything we needed and have the true “lodge” feel I would highly recommend Salmon Catcher Lodge. Feel free to ask me any questions.

The entire trip the owner was drunk and talking trash about previous clients making me wonder what he was going to say about our group when we left. Cabin was not clean and to top it all off they tried over charging me by $2k until I threatened to file a lawsuit.

We ended up cancelling last minute, late at night, for a 3 night stay at a very unclean, unsatisfactory rental. We needed two rooms (for 2 couples)! Called Salmon Catcher Lodge and Terry was so helpful: he was busy, and it was the end of a long day, yet he figured it out for our 3 nights, and we are so glad he did! Risa was also a gem in helping us get settled into our cabins.. This property was great! Clean, cozy, conveniently located, and they even processed your fish for shipping home! The cabins we both ended up with were roomy, and clean! It was a wonderful find and a lifesaver! Needless to say, we will return whenever we can! Thank you so much!!!

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!

Perfect location for a great Alaskan vacation. The lodge itself is located outside of town well away from any traffic or congestion. The guides that the lodge use are extremely professional and really made the trip and unforgettable adventure. Terry makes sure that you get the vacation experience you desire as he goes out of his way to ensure you are able to chose the trips you are interested in. For example we chose separate trips consisting of deep sea fishing, King Salmon, trout, a fishing/bear watching float plane fly -in. Each trip was outstanding and I really don"t think I could pick a 'best' if you asked me. The lodge and grounds are clean and isolated from traffic. You are able to customize all your trips as well as your stay as you can chose to cook your own meals or have the lodge prepare them for you. We elected to have the Lodge prepare of dinners and each meal was outstanding. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, I highly recommend you have them prepare your meals as the food was great and made for a nice end to a long rewarding day. Overall I ican"t say enough about how much I enjoyed staying at the lodge and cant wait to find time to return in the future.

Salmon Catcher Lodge is a beautiful place with great service, they were there to take care of us. We had the dinner package for 4 days, it was outstanding, and we always had two items to choose from, even if you have a special requests/dietary restriction. The log cabins where beautiful and clean with all amenities such as washer/dryer, dishwasher and all utensils. They have a hot tub, sauna, and work out room in a separate building. We did 4 fishing trips and when we returned with the fish, Terry’s family cut it into portion size pieces, vacuum sealed, froze and stored the fish for us. When we were ready to leave, Terry supplied insulated boxes for us to transport our fish home. Terry was the right person to schedule our trips, he knew who to use and how to schedule our trips so we would get the most of our stay in Alaska. If waders or fishing rods are needed, don’t worry, Terry has inventory to choose from, at no charge. Every guide was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and put us on fish. Day 1 - Jeanine and Chuck for Halibut and Rock Fish Day 2 – Dustin and Keegan for Salmon on the Kasilof River Day 3 – Drew and Dave (Fishing Guides) Mark and Greg (Pilots) for Fly in Fishing for Salmon and Wildlife viewing. Day 4 – Andrew and Adam for Trout and Salmon drifting down the Kenai River Terry, thanks for the outstanding trip and great memories
