Arctic Grayling

Arctic Grayling grow to a maximum recorded length of 76 cm (30 inches) and a maximum recorded weight of 3.8kg (8.4lbs) The Goodnews hosts a large population of Grayling, and every season guests hook into fish over 20 inches, especially in the first few weeks of season as they are predominately in the lower river and hungry from a long winter. Grayling can live to be over 30 years old in Alaska, and the largest Grayling recorded in the state was 610mm (24 inches) long, and 2.3 kg (5lbs 1oz.) Fish this big, and bigger live in the Goodnews. These fish will take small streamers and even skated mice. When the sun pops out an Elk Hair Caddis can be deadly. We target them with a 3-5wt rod and a floating line.
