Thread: Hatcher's Pass?

  1. #1

    Default Hatcher's Pass?

    So, I've been berry picking up off Archangel road trail and cant help but notice the beautiful creek, not to mention the lake at the head of the trail. Is there anything in there worth fishing for? Also, how about the area of the river below where it is flowing through the boulder fields...anyone tried it?

    Ive never caught grayling up there, but there are quite a few little dollies. Nothing of any size but they are fun to catch!!

    Thumbs up Catch and release in bacon grease . . .

    They're even more fun in the skillet . . nothing like trout and eggs for breakfast.


    Little ones taste just as good or better than the big ones . . sardines and sprats are a sure cure for any notions of how big a fish must be to eat.

    I second what Snowcrab24 said. Last summer my (then) 6 year old son took his 4wt with him when we went berry picking. The biggest dolly he caught might have been 10", but he caught quite a few 6"-8". They were not picky and would strike at almost any fly he threw at them. We released all of them. It was a great confidence builder for him. We never did see any grayling.

    I was thinking upper willow. Sometimes my mid plays tricks on me.
