Peace of Selby Wilderness Lodge is just what its name implies. The lodge sits on the shores of Selby Lake amid the splendor that is cast down by the Brooks Range. The location is north of the Arctic Circle. The backdrop for this beautiful lodge is the eight million acre Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. This is an isolated and remote location and offers guests a peaceful and quite environment from which they can enjoy the beauty of Alaska in a pristine and natural habitat. What that means for guests of the lodge is that the rivers are clear and full of fish. It means that the wildlife here is plentiful. It also means that everywhere you point a camera is another outstanding picture.

The lodge is an amazing set of opportunities for guests. There are the main lodge and four wilderness cabins, three of which are located around the area on different lakes. The lodge, Peace of Selby sleeps two guests either in a queen sized bed or in two twin beds. There is also the Selby Sourdough Cabin within a few hundred yards of the lodge. The cabin is self-service meaning you bring and cook your own meals. The three other self-service cabins are located on different lakes.

Fishing North of the Arctic Circle

The lake is full of Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling and Northern Pike. The Kobuk River is an amazing river where you can catch Arctic Char and also Sheefish during the month of August. The Grayling are amazing fish that weigh under 3 pounds. They are also smart and challenging to catch. If you fly out to the Kobuk River set yourself up for Sheefish fishing. These are large fish that can weigh up to 60 pounds. They are whitefish that are related to Salmon. Expect a long, lean and silver fish. They are fondly referred to as the Tarpon of the North. They strike hard, and they fight. They leap from the water and display amazing acrobatics. They are a fun fish to fight.

The Wild Wilderness Experience

If you choose to stay at one of the remote cabins rather than the main lodge, you are on your own. The cabins sleep 1-4 people. You can design your own trip with the lodge for activities such as fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing. There are plenty of things to do here year round. You can arrange for guides or explore the wilderness on your own.

Northern Pike

If you have an opportunity to fish for the Northern Pike in lakes or nearby streams, you will enjoy another monstrous fighter. These long, lean predators are patient and formidable opponents. They have a weakness for dry flies that resemble small rodents. They also prefer to lurk in the weedy area of lakes. To attract them, gently jig the fly over the surface of the grassy part of the lake. If they are there, the surface of the water will suddenly break, and the game of landing the pike will be in full swing.
