    Default Haul Road Fishing

    I am thinking about making a trip up the haul road for some fishing and am looking for suggestions on where I should stop. I will have a canoe and/or a float tube with me and I don't mind hiking up to a few miles for good fishing. I am really not picky about species as long as fish are plentiful.

    Also, this will be my first trip on the haul road, so any advice there would be appreciated, as well. Thanks in advance!

    The Sag has some great Gryaling and Char fishing. Some of the small ponds you find up on the will have grayling.
    One the way up the Jim Rivers (think there is four) has good grayling. When I hunt up there I make it a point ot take time out to fish up there.

    I doubt you'd even need the float tube and such, unless you really want them. We've always done real well just off the banks. Small spinners in the jim creeks/rivers and (i forget the name) the larger one you hit a bit north of Coldfoot.


    Grayling galore, have fun! The whole trip is awesome, make sure to take your time, take pictures, catch fish and enjoy yourself!

    I caught a 19 inch out of one of the Jim's.. Long but not that fat. Great fighter.

    Take differnt flies and spinners. One thing I learned is once the grayliing get turned off on a lure I switched up and the bite was on agian.

    Go to this link and scroll down to North Slope Area and there is a pamphlet you can download about fishing along the Dalton.
