Northern Pike Fishing Guide
your skills against a real northern 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.
Walleye (pickerel) and Northern Pike are only found in the south western-most
corner of Nunavut, below the treeline in the lakes that border Saskatchewan
and Manitoba. Walleye generally run up to 2.3 kg (9.5 lbs) and are
easiest to fish in the spring when they are running in the rivers.
Pike generally run between 2.3–6.8 kg (5-15 lbs), however pike
weighing in at 30 to 40 lbs have been taken.
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

Lake Lodge is a fly-in fishing lodge with an initial capacity
of twenty-two guests per rotation. Ennadai Lake, Angikuni
Lake and the Kazan River are in an area of Canada that
is truly untouched. Three
species inhabit these waters: lake trout, northern pike
and arctic grayling. Imagine
drifting a fly down the Kazan, possibly being taken by
a five pound grayling, casting a pike bay catching dozens
of pike or trolling a drop off looking for a thirty- pound-plus
trout. Whether you're a spin-cast or fly-fish enthusiast,
your passion and your dreams can be satisfied here.
We are a new lodge in a new area and we have a strict
catch and release policy for trophy fish, ensuring that
this natural resource remains as it is today. Our equipment
and facilities are world class. Ennadai Lake is on the
treeline and the remaining area is in the barren lands.
Because these lakes are on a river system they are biologically
prolific, especially on and around Ennadai Lake.
Guests of our first-class, fully-guided fishing adventures
will be flown in from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
