Fish Stories Made Here

​​"If you are looking for a first class Alaska fishing experience and being treated like you

are at a 5 star resort but at a fair price - with great dining - then look no further. 

KSL makes us feel at home and always designs

a custom fishing experience that exceeds our expectations.  Last year we had a general plan but they suggested changes as they got to know us - and they were spot-on!  Matt and his crew are simply the best!"

We offer 18 modern, comfortable rooms with private baths, two suites and seven guest cabins as well as Wi-Fi, professional fishing guides, on-site float plane operations, commercial-grade fish packaging and airport shuttle. 

We will be your personal concierge for trip planning, fishing,

float plane fly-outs, eco-tours, photography, wildlife viewing and any other Alaskan adventure you can dream of.


"Matt and his team are exceptional hosts. This is the best place to stay in Bristol Bay. Great food, lovely rooms and fishing right out your front door!"
