Sheefishing in Alaska at Kiana Lodge

Kiana is located on the Kobuk River in Northwestern Alaska, approximately 30 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in “The Land of the Midnight Sun.”

The picturesque community is situated on a bluff overlooking the confluence of the Kobuk andSquirrel Rivers and is home to 400 people, ninety percent who are of Inupiaq Eskimo decent.
