Uinta Mountains, UT September 2009

I made a quick trip up to catch my first ever artic grayling. I had a friend go up the weekend before and said he crushed them so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a 3 1/2 mile hike starting at the fish lake trailhead up Oakley canyon. There are 3 lakes within a mile of each other which are Round, Sand and Fish lakes. I caught grayling and yellowstone cutts in round and grayling in Sand and Fish lakes. I used a mesquito behind a bubble and I had a fish on almost every cast in all 3 lakes. I also cast some spinners and caught a few. Its a good day-hike for anyone wanting a somewhat short hike to catch some grayling. It is well worth the trip.
