Kishwaukee River Pike 3/12/06

Posted by on March 12, 2016

2016-03-12 14.06.58Jaws and I floated a new stretch of the Kishwaukee River in Mchenry County today in search of some early season pike.  Armed with two boxes full of new flies we set out to explore a part of the river that none of my friends have really fished.  The water looked promising with deep cuts and plenty of wood for cover, but this time of year I suspected the pike might be in shallow backwaters off the main river channel where they spawn right after ice out.  The day was overall a little slow.  I did see a couple pike in the 24 inch range in the shallows that didn’t seem aggressive likely due to the spawn, but at the confluence of a side channel and the main current I had one thick pike just shy of 30 inches inhale my fly.
