Grayling Fishing in Alaska

The majority of the grayling fishing in Alaska takes place in the interior regions of the state. That's not to say that there is no grayling fishing in other areas of Alaska but just that the better fishing in found there.

While grayling are equally at home in Alaska's lakes, small streams and in the bigger rivers too, it's the smaller streams where we really enjoy fishing for the the most. Fishing grayling in the lakes of Alaska we often look at the inlets and outlets, depending upon the time of year, as this allows for bank fishing in some clear water with small flies and spinners too.

Our list of favorite fishing areas for grayling include the following:

  • Tangle Lakes on the Denali Highway
  • Paxon Lake on the Richardson Highway
  • East Fork Chulitna River near Healy, Alaska
  • Lake Louise off the Glenn Highway near Glennallen Alaska
