If you haven’t fished for Smallies, you’ve got to try it! These fish fight harder pound-for-pound than any other freshwater fish. Unlike Largemouth Bass that give up after a few short bursts Smallies never quit fighting.
Boundary Water Northern Pike Fly Fishing Guided Trips – Unlike the Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike gravitate to areas near deeper, cooler water temperatures in the heat of the summer and only seek out shallows in the spring for spawning and fall for hardy meals before the lake ices over. Our Boundary Waters Fly Fishing Guides can direct you to many prime spots around Ely, the Boundary Waters and Quetico, so you have the best chance of catching something ‘brag worthy’.

The Boundary Waters, Ely, and Quetico receive lots of attention for its bass fishing, but many people overlook its 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.
