The Arctic grayling is a freshwater fish in the salmon family with five subspecies. In the Ennadai Lake are they are found in the rapids of the Kazan River and left arm of Ennadai. They are great fun to catch and release. They are active & aggressive fish and will jump clear our of the water mulitple times. The world record is 5 lbs 15 oz, a fish over 5 lbs has been caught in the Kazan River. Some love the way a winged Arctic Grayling will treat a well-presented dry fly.
