Arctic Grayling
« on: June 18, 2012, 10:42:33 AM »
I got into a nice bunch of grayling on the weekend out west.  This was in a stream where I usually get a lot more rainbows than anything else.  I caught quite a few rainbows too.  Have any of you guys noticed more and more grayling lately?  I guess most of the eastern slopes streams just opened up this weekend though.

Here is a nice grayling that I caught Saturday evening.  We had to do some serious scrambling and tree crossings over the creek to get into the pools that we wanted to fish.  Saw lots of deer, moose, and elk too which made the trip even more fun.

We have a greed with which we have agreed...
Society, you're a crazy breed.
I hope you're not lonely without me.

Decent grayling for a small stream Axe. Years ago I fished them in the Swan River between Swan Hills and Kinuso, was pretty rare to get anything of decent size but there was no shortage.
