Visit a stream or river near South Fork Lodge, Idaho, and you’ll likely find Kevin Kapalka, right in his element. This avid fly fisherman has tackled every stream from Idaho to Montana, and he isn’t slowing down anytime soon. As Natural Retreats South Fork Lodge’s new GM, Kevin is excited to show guests what makes fishing in Idaho so great.

Not only an avid fisherman and outdoorsman, Kevin has a degree in culinary arts and hospitality management. His entire career has been in the resort sector of travel. He’s worked everywhere from the Caribbean to Hawaii to both the East and West coasts of the United States. Most recently, Kevin worked at a luxury ranch resort that specialized in family and adventure travel.

Prior to starting as the new GM of South Fork Lodge, Kevin visited a few times as a guest and fell in love with the place and when the GM position became available Kevin jumped at the chance. With his years of hospitality experience and a serious love of travel, Kevin was a natural fit.

South Fork Lodge is a premier fly fishing lodge on the Snake River. Our 65 miles of the South Fork are some of the best tailwater and dry fly fisheries in the United States and are home to one of the country’s largest naturally reproducing Yellowstone cutthroat trout populations. We have an award winning guide team who offer unparalleled and unique guided fishing on these pristine waters. In addition to a memorable day of fishing, we are more than happy to arrange horseback riding, whit-water rafting, golf and visits to nearby Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Be sure to stop by South Fork Lodge to wet a line and meet Kevin. “If I’m not at the lodge,” Kevin laughs, I’m probably behind it fishing or, better yet, floating on a stream or river fishing in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming.”
