    Summer/fall, #6 bead head olive woolly bugger, under the bridge and along the banks of the Situk and Kuzitrin. If you have access to a boat, head down to Council and fish the Niukluk/Fish River. Lots of good grayling fishing in the Nome area.

    Don't listen to Dan, horrible advice...



    ...unless alot of these are what you had in mind! Don't forget your dry flies and bead head nymphs, and if you go late June-early July bring smolt/fry patterns. The Dollies there fight as hard as any Rainbow.

    Man, that grayling must be 20 years old. Awesome fish. Ugashik narrows?

    Likely floating two arctic NW rivers this August chasing them myself.

    Love grayling and dolly fishing. Especially when you have 40 miles of river to yourself.

    NW Alaska is very special to the few that spend time in it.

    Never fished the narrows, but spent a few days out of Nome. Your first post is all one needs to know. 4 of us never caught a Grayling under 15" in 3 days, largest taped almost 24". Beautiful water and when you find fish, you find a lot of them.





    Don't forget the Dollies...



    Beautiful country...

    Mid-July on the Snake River - couldn't keep them off of a inch long olive colored smolt pattern. Never tied on a different fly. Don't forget to bring an underwater camera - the waters crystal clear. Dollies and Chum were in there to but had a hard time beating the 17-23 inch grayling.

    Nome was a great trip in 2010. Big Cox can tell you much more than I can, he grew up around Nome. We fished in both directions out of town. Council area has some huge grayling. We wnt in August and caught lots of silvers also, until I hooked his Uncle...jeez

    here is how our trip went:
