Jeff’s family is the original owner of the lodge property, purchasing the land from the Federal Government in the 1940′s. Jeff started fishing every summer with his grandfather in the 80’s, and was instantly hooked on fishing. Over the years, visiting friends and family would all comment to Jeff, “Wow you should really build a fishing lodge here.” One day in 2005 he did. Today Jeff’s family property and the land he developed has become known as Chinook Shores — an Alaska fishing lodge for guided and self-guided anglers.
