NWT Northern Pike Fishing Guide

Northern Pike

Test your skills against a real NWT fighting fish, the Northern Pike ..
The Northern Pike has a reputation for long, hard battles on heavy tackle and almost impossible odds with lightweight gear. It seems that there is always a pike lurking around.

Pike can be found throughout most of the mainland NWT. They prefer warm, slow, heavily vegetated rivers and the warm, weedy bays of lakes. Pike are found throughout the year in shallow water due to their ability to tolerate higher water temperatures, lower concentrations of oxygen and higher concentrations of carbon dioxide than many species of freshwater fish. They generally lie motionless and well camouflaged waiting to pounce on anything that swims too close.

Pike are most often taken by trolling along weed bed edges with large spoons, plugs and streamers. Casting into weedbeds with live or artificial baits can also be effective. Many fly casters have taken up "pike chasing" by wading shorelines using long rods and heavier weight-forward lines to toss streamers or frog imitations at their prey. All forms of pike fishing rigs should include a wire leader to withstand the impact of their razor-sharp teeth.
Canadian Record: 42 lbs. 13 ounces.
