    Default Denali Highway Lakers ? - Tangle Lakes ?

    Long time lurker... first time poster...

    I am planning on exploring the highway near the Tangle Lakes area in a couple weeks.

    Can/Will anyone offer some tips on Lakers in this area ? I have caught a lot in LL using various methods, but never fished for them off the Denali. I have heard they are around, but don't really know.

    I will have a few different toys/tools to access different areas. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Caught a couple last year with little effort in Tangle Lake using a mini spoon. I was in my boat, just casting, letting it fall, and jigging it back up. No a lot of size, probably 16 and 18".

    Lots of big lake trout in these 2 lakes, but they are 20+ miles south of the highway!

    And that is "ONLY" nine minutes by C-206 or sixteen minute flight in a PA-18-150.

    more like 28 miles and 8 hours if you have a 6x6 or an argo... if the winds start up watch out for some big waves on those two lakes.
