    Default Grayling

    I'm trying to go grayling fishing. Was wondering where some good areas for grayling fishing was right now and if their diets change during the fall or not. Thx

    I have been using a royal coachman like fly, seems to work well in the upper lakes. Cast out and strip in. Gerberman

    They ought to be but I've been pretty surprised (okay, very surprised) by how far upstream I've caught some grayling recently. Latest I've caught them up there.

    You are correct, Sir. Though as long as specific rivers aren't frozen, and there is still food in places like clearwater and upper chena, they should be there for a bit longer. Maybe not in the summer numbers, but success should still be had. I catch tons of them on the Chena, as it runs right behind my house. If you try the Chena, grab a couple Klinkhammers to toss in your box, they float high, and are easy to see. This time of year however, sub-surface is going to produce much more fish.

    Delta Clearwater should be a good bet on beads, as the silvers should still be in there spawning. If you are in the valley, I would try Talkeetna as the water is clearing up, also, anywhere clear water dumps into the Susitna should produce fish. Beads, small baitfish, or leach patterns would be my choice right now.
