    X Lake has decent fishing and is next to the highway. Y Lake is catch and release and has pretty good flyfishing. I like lake leeches in brown, olive, purple, and black.

    I second that.....I've fished these lakes considerably and usually have outstanding luck! However, with the warm temps over the holiday weekend, the fishing was VERY slowwwww!!!! I fished Y-Lake (roadside) on Friday evening & Saturday morning from my canoe-- with *ZERO* bites. Water temp was more suitable for swimming than fishing!

    BRWNBR, not X or Y but using spinners for grayling I have had sucess with a 0 mepps wilh an olive and brown body with a red tail. The picture below doean't have the olive but looks similar. Both brass and nickle blades do well.

    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    We fished Tigger lake a bit on Sunday. It was to hot for any real success. The lake is very peaceful as you have to walk just under 200 yards of trail to get into it. A fellow we met at the campground said he limited out the night before fishing at 7 pm.

    If you are looking for it there is no sign coming from Talkeetna, only as you are driving towards town.
