Northern Pike Fly-Fishing Guides

Guided Fly-Fishing Trips for Pike

The Boundary Waters, Ely, and Quetico receive lots of attention for its bass fishing, but many people overlook it’s potential as an excellent northern pike fishery. Pike up to 35-40″ are common and readily take a fly. Moose Track Adventures Guides now have specific areas that we take customers to that produce excellent fly-fishing for pike all season long. Peak times for pike are May-June and September-November. And while casting for northern pike there is always a good chance of tangling with a huge smallmouth bass.
