    Default Tangle Lakes

    Hello every one,
    I am going up to the Tangle lakes in Aug some time and I have heard it is a great place to fly fish for grayling and Lakers, so with that being said what is the best way to go, boat? no boat? Any hints or suggestions would be greatly accepted. I am trying this as it doesn't seem chasing the salmon this year is worth it. If you want to email me any thing special so it doesn't get posted that is fine too!

    Thanks,
    Kenaibow fan

    A 4wt for grayling. Use mosqitos,nymps,stimulators,beattles,ants and alot of dries.

    I would take a boat and bring a few rods for trolling with wiggle warts. Just went out this last sunday till wed. and caught 4 lakers trolling and over 200 grayling. If you go to the tangle lakes campgroud hike down to the water edge then fish the 2nd stream down. Also the day parking a lil up the road from the campground is exellent for evening grayling and whitefish were the lake flowing into the tangle river

    And PLEASE only keep a few fish and put back all the lakers. That is a good source of fishing only if people dont kill of alot of breeder fish.

    Well Lake Creek let me return the favor then, in the valley you need a float tube.... end of story. But once you have that, a 4 wt is good, floating line and a good mix of dry's same ones as you told me, and lake leaches work good. I would also bring a few beads the roe color works good in spring, for what ever reason the rainbows hit red stuff. So any way back to what I was saying, fish gravel area's in the spring and fall and in the summer fish the deep water and troll your flie behind you. I have found that the darker colors work best when it comes to leaches in deeper water, And all of them pretty much work even egg sucking ones.
    If you are looking for which lakes to fish all the ones in the Kepler/Bradley system are good for rainbows, and a few of the other ones along (if you are going towards the fair grounds) the way have other stuff in them like grayling and land lock.

    I hope this helps if you have any questuions give me a shout I might be able to help.
    by the way my favorite 3 are Steelhead, Kenai rainbows, silvers.

    don't forget your fins! SW has tubes and fins, or you can go to a dive shope and get some good fins.
