Artic Grayling

Question:

Where did the grayling I cought right below the Ashton dam come from are you starting to see them in that area? I have fished it for 15+ years and have never seen the fish before in those waters. I know it was a grayling because of the spotted colorful long dorsal fin just curious on how it got there and if we are getting more of them?

Answer:

There are a few grayling below Ashton Dam that have come from our Ashton Fish Hatchery. 

Because of the cool water at Ashton, we bring all of our grayling eggs into that facility and raise them to the size fish we need for stocking high mountain lakes.
