    Default Our Klutina report

    So June and I got to fish some new water this weekend. We took 4 wheelers up to Klutina lake from Copper Center. We scouted 4 or 5 holes on the way up and worked them on the way down. What a fast moving river. The last (or first on the way up hole) we liked was nice. A few bows, lots of grayling and bluebird and 75 degrees. We did not chase reds or kings just She and I on our flyrods. Black ESL's and 10mm beads did the trick. As usual June outfished me. Also we stopped at Mendelta Creek on the Glen highway on the way home. I caught a 16 inch grayling out of there a few years ago. Lots of 8-10 inchers there and if your in that area (especially with kids) fish it. You can catch them right by the bridge. We fished from the bridge upstream about 1/4 of a mile. If I was not so hung over we might have stayed more than an hour

    Here are a few pics from the Klutina

    When I'm tossing spinners for grayling I only use #2 and #3 Blue Fox spinners and catch tons of little guys like that, even though I'm trying to catch the big boys. The bigger baits result in less (read near zero) gill hooked fish. The big guys at our lodge range in size from 18" to 21" and well over 3 pounds.
    I have a 3 1/2 pounder on the wall.
