Thread: Tangle report

  1. #1

    Default Tangle report

    We never get into anything decent sized in the Tangle Lakes/River. But go down the road a few miles and hike to some of the more remote streams and you start seeing decent sized fish.

    It was a BLAST. Not a lot is more enjoyable than to watch a fat Grayling come leaping up out of the water after your fly.





    My favorite hole in the world.


    Thank God for people who don't fish!! Not much would get done without them =)

    We had some luck with the grays as well. No pics as dropped the camera in the lake while trolling if anyone finds a kodak easyshare, feel free to hit it with a bat.

    I caught a laker where the 2nd stream mouth was at about 5:30am and a few 17" grays while fishing spinners for lakers. Steped on a big ol grizz while at landmark gap... SCARY SHIZZ he was a biggun and i learned my lesson hiking alone. But i fired a warning shot off and ran to the boat. Yep must be louder next time.

    It got into the mid 30's at night! pretty chilly. I was the kid if any of you people saw at the tangle campground with the rc cars and the rc boat with the pirate flag

    I'm to lazy to drive to Tangle and go fish for grayling, but it sure would be fun on a 3-4 WT. Nice pics, looks like a good time.

    Hahah we had a flag, too!



    Sounds scary man, good thing you had a gun! We forgot to pack one...but had plenty of spray. And sorry about the camera, that sucks =( While hiking back to Glacier Lake, we stumbled upon a very unhappy bou who bluffed us a couple times before taking off the other direction. And two weekends ago we has a brush with a porcupine who decided he wanted to crawl up under the truck and DIG at 1am, 3am, 4am....

    We also got into some smaller lakers. Our buddy had better luck with spinners but we got a few with leeches. They are fun on a 5-6wt! It was also very pretty up there....
    Thank God for people who don't fish!! Not much would get done without them =)

    what do you generally use for grayling on a fly rod? Mosquito patterns or something? Or will they pretty much hit most things you throw at them? I was going to drive up there last weekend, spur of the moment type thing but I settled for Willow instead, ha.

    In really fast waters I use nymphs. And in that case pretty much anything goes since they don't get much of a chance to look and consider what they are hitting.

    In slower waters/lakes I use a size 16 dry, pretty much anything with a black body goes. They can either slam everything you throw at them, or be super picky. The key seemed to be keeping it HIGH and DRY more than matching the right pattern.

    Grayling aren't to picky, but definitely the Blue Dun is the best I've seen work. I haven't done to much Grayling fishing though...

    I've even got them on mini wooley buggers in a quick current =) Sometimes they hit so well that I swap up my flies just to play around =)
