You could season the grill.
I have a non-seasoned iron grill and it sticks too much when I put fish on it to grill. Are there any tips I'm missing here not to make it stick too much? I tried coconut oil, didn't help much.

Brush it with olive oil while it`s heating?

I don't know how much coconut oil you put on the thing, but try a bigger glob of the stuff?
All of the above and drizzle olive oil on the fish before seasoning and cooking.
You have to rub the grill with oil after you wash it. It takes times for a grill to "season" just like any cast iron pan. Quickest method is to rub well with oil then put in the oven at 300F for an hour. Let cool, wash, re-oil. Then use plenty of oil rubbed on the fish--fish is always the worst for sticking. Don't they make some kind of glue out of fish scales?

I didn;t think that you washed seasoned pans, because it removes the seasoning? We rinse with hot water and use a scraper.
I would use more oil. When I cook fish, its swimming in coconut oil. YUM!

I think if you put hot water into the grill it's ok. That's what I did, after the fish got stickied in the grill I poured some hot water into the grill and let it rest in the sink with the water. Then I had lunch and when I came back I removed the water and got paper towels to remove the stuff.
After cleaning it up I put a layer of olive oil with paper towel until I use it again.
I've seen an article about seasoning iron skillets and grills with flaxseed oil, but it involved you get it to the oven for 1 hour multiple times. You had to put put a layer on it of flaxseed oil, then put it in the oven for 1 hour, then let it cool off, then repeat a number of times. Too much work for me.
Seasoning cast iron isn't too bad since most of the process is waiting...just pick a cool day when you'll be home for a while. If you do decide to season it, I'd recommend using anything but flaxseed oil. You will get better results with saturated fats like coconut oil or lard.
