The Palometa Club is owned and operated by Americans, Dick and Kaye Cameron. They contribute their twenty combined years of experience running fly fishing operations to ensure an unrivaled experience for all their guests.
After five years as manager of the Ascension Bay Bonefish Club, Dick and his lovely bride, Kaye, started the Palometa Club in 2006. Dick has led an action packed and colorful life as a commercial fishermen, sportfishing guide, mechanical pipefitter, and of course fishing lodge owner. He also has an incredible sense of humor and the perfect no-nonsense personality for running a fishing lodge. Dick is a third generation Alaskan and began his fishing career at age ten aboard his father’s commercial fishing boat. A consummate adventurer with a deep passion for fishing and hunting, he has owned fishing lodges in Alaska and has guided wilderness hunting trips throughout the state.
Kaye is a beautiful and hospitable hostess who is in charge of keeping good manners in check and ensuring your margarita glass is always full. Kaye was born in Seattle to a large, fun-loving family that emigrated from Italy in the early 1900s. Her professionalism and contagious enthusiasm make her the perfect co-host.
For the past fifteen years Dick has worked on Ascension Bay learning the secrets of this amazing fishery and becoming trusted and well-liked by the residents of Punta Allen. Together, Dick and Kaye’s popular status with the townsfolk has allowed them to assemble an elite team of veteran guides and experienced service staff for The Palometa Club.
Dick and Kaye were married in Punta Allen, Mexico in June 2004. During the off-season they live and work in Juneau, Alaska, with the Club Mascot, “Digger”.
