​​"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!"
