I did a little grayling fishing a few years back in one place I NEVER thought they would be...Arizona! Prior to my deployment to the "sandbox" from Ft. Huachuca (South of Tuscan), I spent a few weekends in the mountain streams and lakes at Fort Apache Indian Reservation which is an hour or so northeast of Phoenix. The mountains in this area are 10 to 11 thousand feet (Sunrise Ski Resort) and the snow melt and overall weather keeps the waters cold enough year round for heldover trout. They have cutthroat, browns, rainbows, and graylings. Stream fishing is good, but the lake fishing was Fantastic! They do not allow morotized boats in the lakes, so many fly guys use float tubes and sinking lines (a first for me). We were catching trout with an average size of 18-20 with a few monster browns hitting 24+. Most stay at the campsites lakeside or head to the hotels in the cool little town called Pinetop. There is a 3-day permit for $10-15 dollars and if you want to fish the trophy lakes (catch and release only) it's an additional $5 a day. To catch the graylings, one has to fish deeper (60 plus feet) with peacock streamers and wooly buggers (with peacock herls). We would cast out as far as ones ability (tough when your sitting up to your waist in water), strip out any additional line, and slowly kick (with fins) while making short strips. They were certainly smaller than the monster browns, but a 14 inch grayling is not too shabby! There is a nice flyshop in the town of Pinetop were they will rent you float tubes and neoprene waders. Can't think of the name, but the owner is a fellow Army guy and is a good egg. Anybody up for a trip to Phoenix?
