    Default haul road fishing

    say O master jedi,
    I and son will be on haul road by sept. 4 attempting to kill caribou with a bent stick, string and another stick. While doing this we would like to fish for some grayling or similar, not northerns along the road. Any ideas on where, what we should do? What weight rods are best? any thoughts on flys at that time? What is the best way, in your taste area, to prepare them for a dinner. That is assuming we catch some. We will be north of the Atigan pass and really would like to fish. If this is too late, say so as we will not purchase a fishing lic.

    Great pics!

    Thank you

    Please excuse my delayed reply, I was out fishing. I will be brief and honest. That is a great time to fish the Sag River for Grayling.

    Sagavanirktok River (The Sag River) The river basically flows from The North Slope alongside the Dalton Highway (Haul Road) the main stem or any of the tributaries flowing into it will have grayling. I would bring at least 6 wt size and prepare to fish top and sub surface. It is a long way to a tackle shop. egg suckin leeches, woolly boogers, salcha pinks, adams and mosquito's is what I will take. It will be too early for the Dolly Varden to be in the river the first part of september but they are huge and beatiful colors (Check out the cover of the latest Fish Alaska Magazine) I will be leaving after the 15th to go fish for the Dolly. Grayling will hit almost any mid size spinner with a conventional rod and reel if you do not fly rod it.

    Several access points along the way from mile post 309 on up.

    I have only eatin grayling twice, twice was enough for me. I suggest you bring a quart bottle of BBQ sauce per fish and do not eat for at least 2 days so your good and hungry. Gut it, put a stick through it and cook it on an open flame, drown in BBQ sauce = yummy

    Or: pack in some pop-tarts and a camera and take great picture and have pop-tarts for breakfast/lunch/dinner = yummy

    A Jedi Salmon Slayer main diet item is pop-tarts while fishing.

    Hope this helps...Fish ON!! TSS

    Greyling are ok to eat as long as you eat them imeadiatly. catch one clean and cook on the spot. Even a couple hours and the flesh will start to pick up a fish slim taste

    Heck no you need not have a costume. Being a Salmon Jedi is felt from within...trust your feelings...reach out.....and set the hook.

    I do have an extra set of leotards if you need them?

    Fish ON!! TSS

    Thumbs up Real fly fishing. . .

    My wife and I just came across the Denali Highway last week, where I did some grayling fishing.

    The only size I care about is whether they'll fit in a cast-iron skillet, and we enjoyed several meals—supper and with eggs for breakfast—of fresh grayling.

    Had my best luck with a wet fly, fished upstream on a dead drift.

    Real fishing. . . . no pegged beads, no flossing . . .

    Amen! After spending time around folks snagging, flossing, and scaring salmon onto the line, it is so nice to fish for fish that eat.

    did you have to whack that fish on the back of it's head to get the fins to stand up like that? Or do you have your thumb back there?

    I generally do not keep grayling, particularly in areas where they take a long time to develop, and because salmon is tastier, but someone told me that to get a good picture of a grayling, just get a Buck knice or some small solid object and whack where you would a salmon. Ever heard of this? I haven't tried it.
