Territory Northern Pike Fishing
your skills against a real Yukon 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 spawn in the spring in shallow, weedy, flooded areas of rivers,
marshes and bays of large 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
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
