Getting off the beaten track is a great way to get to better fishing, and these fly fishermen did that in spades. Getting to these pike involved a long drive through the Yukon, a paddle down a swift river, plus a good portage. The drone footage says it all, with several pike seemingly competing to check out the fly.
Take a moment to watch this incredible footage which is sure to make you grab your gear and run for the lake.
Thanks to FishingYukon.com for the video. They note that The Yukon and Northwest Territories have some of the best pike fishing you may ever experience. We believe them when they say under the right conditions, you can catch several pike in a day measuring over a meter (meaning over 40 inches!).
Thanks to the Fly Lords highlight of this spot, only “…about 300km from Whitehorse Canada, then paddle 20 km down a swift river, and portage another 1km through the forest to get there. As you can see, it really pays off!”
Northern pike will chase flies ranging from conventional streamers to imitations of mice, small squirrels, frogs, and yes even baby ducks. In any case, they are some of the most fun trophy fish to catch, and they taste good too!
