The Alagnak River and Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge - The Fish - Part 10 (Northern Pike)

Northern Pike are ferocious predators prone to attack both top water and subsurface flies. The Alagnak River holds a stable population of Norther Pike during the summer, deep backwater slews or small isolated lakes are where you will find them sitting in ambush. Their explosive takes and prehistoric look is what sets them apart from other fish in the area, but they are built for short fast strikes and not long sustained fights so they often come quickly to the net.
A 7 wt. rod is sufficient when fishing for Northern Pike, but be sure your guide has wire leader before going after them as they have large sharp teeth.

 MAIN FISHING PERIOD: June through August
