I was thinking about going after some pike in a local river coming up here, don't they usually head to the creek mouths to spawn this time of year? I think it would be a lot of fun to get after them with my new fly rod. Also if they are already done spawning where would they be in a medium sized river with little vedgitation?

Pike spawn in backwater areas with dead or flooded vegetation on the bottom. They are likely to reamain in these areas even after they spawn. I spend a lot of time fishing smallies in Minnesota rivers, and it is very predictable where the pike will be found--almost always in large eddies with slow current. Hvave fun, and be sure to use wire!
