Grayling are a fish that can often be under appreciated here in Alaska. In south central Alaska they generally don't get too big but they are fun to catch and have amazing colors. The Grayling will take anything from dry flies to beads and are often found where the rainbows are and using 3 or 4 weight rods will suffice for these fish. Grayling are not usually the trophy fish that people come to Alaska for but they are still impressed by the appearance of these underdogs.

Rainbow fishing has been slow but steady. Just waiting on the Kings to get up river now to bring the bows out of hiding. Once the Kings get further up into the tributaries and start dropping eggs fishing will really start to pick up. If you are lucky enough to fish during the first egg drop it can be crazy! Kings are starting to move into the mouth's of the Parks Highway tributaries so it shouldn't be too much longer until we start seeing them up stream. The Rainbows are feeding on just about everything right now so fish it all, flesh, beads, smolt, and sculpin. Tight Lines!
