Northern Pike Fishing on Eagle Lake, Ontario, Canada

Northern Pike Fishing

If it’s a fight you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place! Nothing quite matches the reckless abandon of a northern pike striking a lure. Three hundred years ago, Isaac Walton wrote in The Compleat Angler that pike hunt like wolves, and there is no better place to find packs of these apex predators than at Andy Myers Lodge.

World Class Northern Pike Fishing Trips

The tackle-busting northern pike sits atop the freshwater food chain and is right at home in Eagle Lake, Ontario. The lake provides the shallow spawning bays, baitfish-covered reefs and humps, and the deep, cool waters that grow the biggest pike. Thanks to a quarter-century of a protective slot limit, the pike population is healthy and trophy fish over 20 pounds and 42 inches abound in the lake.

Andy Myers Lodge is in the center of the action, nestled on a large pike spawning bay and close to the two deepest areas of the lake where the pike spend their summers, so it is the perfect setting for your northern pike fishing trip in Canada. As an added bonus, the pike here sometimes naturally spawn with muskies to produce the rare and spectacular tiger muskie. Catching one of these beauties is a great thrill in Northwoods angling.

Pike Fishing Season

Pike prefer cooler water, moving into shallow bays to spawn as soon as the ice goes out. They remain on shallow structures until the water temperatures reach 60 degrees later in June when they head for deeper water. This makes the early season one of the best times for trophy northern pike fishing in Ontario. Even when the main lake warms up, we have remote, deep lakes that stay cool for several more weeks, extending your chance to hook a beast in shallow water. Ask us about our Fly-Ins and 4-Wheel Drive adventures.

As the temperatures rise in summer, you will still find small and medium-sized pike on shallow structures, but the biggest fish will seek cooler water in the depths. You need to get jigs, countdown lures, or live baits down to them or deep troll the edges of structures along the main lake basin. This is the kind of northern pike fishing where you will greatly benefit from the experience of our professional guides. Check out our Multi-Species Special Week when tournament pros and instructors John Stone and Ron Barefield will be in camp to share their remarkable expertise about catching all the trophy gamefish Ontario, Canada has to offer.

Late September through October is the ultimate time to catch trophy pike. The colder water of fall brings them to the edges of shallow structures pursuing baitfish schools to fatten up before the approaching winter. They reach their largest sizes of the year and they are easy to locate and catch with live bait or trolling methods. Trophy northern pike fishing in the fall can be insane on Eagle Lake.

With intense action throughout the season, the perfect location on Eagle Lake, and the comfortable accommodations of four-season cabins, our calendar fills up fast at Andy Myers Lodge. Contact us today to book the northern pike fishing trip of your dreams!
