The Salmon Catcher Lodge Story


Hi folks, my name is Terry Johnson. My wife and I are the proud owner/operators of Salmon Catcher Lodge. Salmon Catcher Lodge is the premier Alaska fishing lodge on the Kenai Peninsula, southwest of Anchorage. We are located in the town of Kenai, central to world class sportfishing adventures in Kenai, Soldotna, Seward and Homer, Alaska. Our facility offers luxury accommodations and Alaska fishing trips for individuals and families. We can even host groups of up to 55 (please call 907-335-2001).


Back in 1993, I was a pilot for UPS, based out of Anchorage. One weekend, I went fishing with a friend on the Kenai River and immediately fell in love with this area. I returned every weekend layover I had after that first trip. By 1996, I was coming so often I brought down a boat and camper to Kenai. In 2001, I broke ground on a “cabin” that today is the 2800 sq. foot Caribou Crossing part of our lodge. Today, I live my dream every day here at the lodge and want to share it with you.

About The Kenai Peninusula


The Kenai Peninsula is a natural wonder, situated between Cook Inlet to the west and Prince William Sound to the east. One of the last truly wild places in America, the peninsula is home to over 1800 animal species including: wolves, bears, moose, caribou, beavers, eagles and 20 species of fish!

The peninsula is a world class destination for Alaska fishing trips, offering trophy opportunities for several species of both fresh and saltwater gamefish.


In addition to the great fishing you will find near our Kenai resort, there are many once in a lifetime non-fishing adventures awaiting you as well. You will see wildlife that you’ve only seen in pictures. Natural wonders like the glacier fields will captivate you. Easy day excursions to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Kenai Fjords National Park are just a short drive away.

Let Salmon Catcher Lodge be your luxury basecamp for your Alaska fishing trip adventure. Whether it’s your first time coming to Alaska, or your fifteenth, Salmon Catcher Lodge will amaze and delight you. Let me help you make your Alaska vacation package dream a reality. I hope to see you here soon at our our Kenai resort.

All the best,

Terry and Angelyn Johnson
