Last fish of the year?

By Troutnut on October 10th, 2013
I bought a new raft this week (more on that in an upcoming post) and took a couple free hours to test it out in a local pond. Caught one little stocked grayling that revealed itself by rising to one of the very sporadic Callibaetis duns emerging just days before the pond freezes for the next 7 months. Winter is coming.

Even stocker grayling are pretty. I planned to keep this one for dinner if it was the first of many, but the others weren't biting and the stringer hadn't done any permanent damage, so I released it unharmed. From Bathing Beauty Pond in Alaska.

Posts: 560You need to have an imaginative mind like I have. I catch my limit last stool at the happy hr. bar all the time, and my season never ends. We just had a nearby lake stocked with grayling recently. Good pics, and nice boat.
