Yellowknife River, North West Territories

Location: Yellowknife River, North West Territories
GPS: N 62° 30.729, W 114° 16.009
Species: Northern Pike

This Hotspot is a bay in the Yellowknife River. This is an early season post-spawn Pike area that can get some really big fish cruising around. It’s all about timing. A soft, weightless jerkbait like a Yamamoto D Shad in a bright colour will pretty much clean up here. Slow-moving spoons and spinnerbaits can do wonders here as well.

Take advantage of the gin-clear water and use your eyes to look for any big, long, dark spots lying on the bottom—they’re not always logs!
