    Hey, my buddy is going to Alaska grayling fishing, and he asked me for lure recommendations. I have no idea. He’ll be drift fishing a VERY remote river. Thanks for any advice.

    Small Mepps type spinners or spoons. Or fly fish for them.

    If he’s fly fishing, don’t forget the dry flies. Unlike Trout, Grayling often prefer to hit dries.

    A favorite memory of my Alaskan adventure, we found some Grayling rising up under some Willows that were hanging out over the river. Tough to get a cast up under that cover but I managed to catch a couple. Grayling are pretty exotic stuff for a Minnesota kid.

    Small white tube jigs. Grayling are considered the sunfish of Alaska. If he’s fishing waters that grayling are in, he should have no problems catching them.
