At Peterson's Point Lake Lodge the trout are found in shallow water all summer long (15' -25') making them the hardest fighting most aggressive fresh water fish you've battled on a fly. Two prominent rivers flow into Point Lake; the Itchen River from the north and the Sagvak River from the south providing ideal habitat for Arctic Grayling.
Arctic Grayling provide great action for angler who want to fly fish or for spin casters. If you haven't had enough fishing during the day, step outside of your cabin and you can fish on the little lake located directly behind the cabins for Arctic Grayling, thus taking advantage of the longer hours of daylight.

Caribou Today. Although the caribou still move across the northern tundra, recently the Government of the Northwest Territories has imposed a hunting ban affecting outfitters on the Bathurst Herd, Bluenose East Bathurst and Ahiak Herds. *Studies conducted by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Department of Environment and Natural Resources conclude that barrenground caribou herds in the Northwest Territories have been declining and are at low numbers. To assist in the conservation and recovery of these herds, there is currently no outfitted hunting for barrenground caribou in the NWT. The government does not propose to do another survey of the Bathurst Herd until 2012, which means we may be allowed to hunt in 2013.
Purchasing a big game hunt is an investment of your time and finances. That is why were are committed to ensure you have a successful hunt. Having a successful hunt means different things to different people. The prospect of returning home with a “book” animal is very exciting to some people whereas others are thrilled by the pursuit, and as a result, harvest a representative bull.
Experiencing a new and unique hunting area, seeing indigenous wildlife and developing camaraderie/friendships with fellow hunters are also facets of a successful hunt.
As a responsible outfitter, we don’t promise you what we can’t deliver. We make no guarantees about getting a “book” animal; this is the sport of hunting. We have no control over the weather or the caribou migration. What you can expect is that we will give 110% effort to make your entire trip a success. We stress the importance of fair chase and responsible hunting. We guarantee that we will provide you with a well-run operation offering you excellent lodging, top-notch equipment, great meals and expert guides. We have been in business over 25 years and the number of guests that return to hunt with us is a testimony to our service.
