Northern Pike Fishing
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
