Dble Haul Some of these spots might have early arrival stripers at the heads of the coves, too.

Dble Haul Red/white
All white
All yellow
All chartruese

Some people do well with black, but I haven't. Maybe I just have enough success with the aforementioned colors to really give it a fair shot.

flyfisha1 With all of this pike chat, I'm wondering what everyone's most productive color patterns have traditionally been.

Mine are:

Yellow Perch

Dble Haul I just finished checking the tides for the area of the river we would be fishing on the 25th.....incoming from late morning to late afternoon. This means access to some very fishy spots!

Perhaps the pike gods are smiling upon us.

Let's hope for stable weather during that time frame (fingers crossed).

John Desjardins Kirk, here is the pike stocking list for Massachussetts.

I'd like to make it to the pike clave. But, I need to wait until closer to then to committ.

Adrian, fish Bantam lake this year, I don't think it will get as many fish next year when your current governor is in jail.

kirk I have not been able to confirm first hand about pike in the charles, though from good sources, they are there.

I will pencil in this event on the calendar, and can bring my 16' alum boat if needed.

Quentin I hope to make it this year. If so I can bring my 12' tin boat provided that we launch and stay in protected waters. I can take one additional person but we would have to take turns casting.

Kirk, there are a few places with self-sustaining pike populations in western MA, including Lake Buel, Onota Lake, Pontoosuc Lake, Cheshire Reservoir and the Houstatonic River. I have had my best (i.e., only) success with the flyrod in the Housatonic River, but ice fishermen often catch monsters in Pontoosuc and Onota lakes so I know they're in there. I think the pike population in Cheshire Lake has declined dramatically in the last decade or two, but the ice guys used to catch them there as well. Lake Buel seems to have a healthy population but I haven't fished it enough to know for sure.


p.s., I think the Charles River in eastern MA has good pike fishing too, but I don't have any first-hand knowledge of that.
