Posted on September 27th, 2016

Many river anglers know that in late spring pike move into many of the Great Lakes tributary mouths to spawn and many remain in the lower stretches throughout the summer.

Matt Cory of TopSet Sportfishing sent us these images of good-size tributary pike that they managed to land using their fly rods.

Once water temperatures drop low enough and steelhead start running up the same tributaries, the pike will migrate back down to winter in the Great Lakes. One of the easiest ways to catch them is by fishing bright streamers in some of the deeper pools and runs.
