When I grafted Pawpaw in Illinois I had no trouble with grafts. Dormant scion wood and the outdoor tree just breaking dormancy as others have said.
I can't remember where you live, but if it is at all dry I recommend wrapping the graft and the whole scion in parafilm or budding tape. When I moved to New Mexico and had really low take rates on things that I had high take rates in Illinois until I started doing that. I haven't tried the pawpaw here, but that is what I would do it had made a considerable improvement in the rate of takes of more or less everything here.
