I went up for 10 days and the Lodge was great. The Guide service with Russell fishing was awsome!! I got to go King Salmon fishing, Halibut and Trout and had 3 guides and they were all very good at there job and knew where the fish were and made sure you had a good trip. We had a family of Moose in the camp and they were beautiful. Not only was it fun fishing but even better at the end of the day the all the stories around the fire and enjoying the appetizers they provide before dinner and the dinners were very good and working on new and improved menus to out do the other fish camps and then a few beers and some bragging and fish tales were great. I have already told just about everybody I have run into to that if they are thinking about going to AK to contact this place! Not only would I recomend this to friends but suggest even if your looking to go site seeing to see bears, moose, lots of eagles and caribou they can accomidate anything you need. Thanks to everybody at Alaska Hooksetters Lodge and Russell Fishing for such a wonderful time and hope to go back. Remember to bring mosquito spray and a mask to keep the sun out since in the summer it is always light out...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An Uncommon Alaska Vacation Lodge with a Unique PhilosophyAlaska Hooksetters is “not your typical Alaska fishing lodge offering your typical Alaska fishing packages at your typical Alaska trip prices.”Why? Because three businessmen joined together a few years ago to create a Kenai Alaska venue and environment that welcomestheir friends and family to a “home away from home” Alaska Vacation on the Kenai Peninsula;fishermen of all ages and skills, and non-fishermen alike….even if they are traveling together; couples looking to truly experience an Alaska Vacation on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula; families on an Alaska Vacation who may not want a full week of non-stop Alaska fishing charters;companies looking for a great Alaska retreat, event or incentive.Our philosophy and perspective is different. Alaska Hooksetters Lodge wants to build memories. Surely a 70lb king salmon, a 300lb halibut or a 10lb rainbow will do that. But so will sharing stories around a covered fire pit or walking the gray soft sand beach near the mouth of the mighty Kenai River. What could be more memorable than a hike along a river or through a lush landscape taking photos of the wildlife; a grizzly bear and her cubs, a moose and her newborn calves, or an eagle soaring above the trees. As the years pass us by, the fondest recollections of your Alaska vacation may be the solitude of your surroundings, the call of the loon, the magnificent and breathtaking mountains where they rise from Cook Inlet, or the fabulous Midnight Sun. ... more less
