Author Topic: Norther pike

Hi can anyone help --I want to go norther pike fishing but need to know the closest lake to vancouver( that yer alowed to fish for them) --any help would be good

are you sure you meant northern pike and not pike minnow. as gearbox said, northern pike are not around here. as for pike minnows, Chilliwack lk has a pike minnow derby every year. some of the local members can tell you other places for them if that is what you mean.

*Cultus Lake has the pike minnow derby, they are plentiful and very easy to catch.

thanks for the correction Monahan. Cultis lk is what I meant. old age I guess !

Zap brannigan

Columbia river has illegally stocked pike and there's a bounty on them.

thanks ill look into that zap brannigan--thx for the help

A few years back my buddy caught a Pike on the Columbia and tons of Whalleye.

I saw on a web site that Erie Lake near Salmo has northern pike but then I read an article on the lake and it only mentioned lg mouth bass, brookies and pumpkinseeds. you might want to check further in that area. maybe a call to a tackle shop in Salmo might help you. as gearbox said, there may be some but I have never heard of anything worth targeting after driving for a day !

I've been fishing the Columbia River around Castlegar for the last few days.... kept seeing these signs around the river at some of the more popular fishing spots. --->>

Decided to try for one..... heres the result

BIG female full of eggs!! hope i get the reward!

It wasnt me but someone i know ill try and post a pic.


Charlie Lake close to Fort St. John is probably closest destination to get some trophy pikes and walleys in BC. I'm located in Vancouver but I never regret to go there and have good fishing time. Walleys are taking basically anything similar to worms. For bigger pikes you should set bait to make sure that "hungry smaller water residents won't attack it":-) Camp site on Charlie Lake is simple but always works for me.
