My 7 year old son wants to catch a Northern Pike! Ever since I showed him a pike mount at Cabela's he's been nonstop about asking to catch one. We mostly bass fish on the front range and as far as I know there are no pike on the front range. Went to 11 mile a few weeks back and did not hook into a pike. I researched that Williams Fork might be a good place to go next. We are not trying for trophy fish, just want to catch a few 24 inchers and of course release them back into the water to grow up.
I have small boat with a 5hp on it and will stick close to shore but want people's opinions about which side (East or West) of the reservoir we should dedicate early morning casting too. The fingers on the west side look good but with a small boat and only a 5hp motor I'd rather stay on the east side close to the boat ramp BUT will venture to the west side if 1. the wind is not too ferocious and 2. people say that's the best area for pike.
Thanks in advance and I'll be sure to update the forum about conditions at Williams Fork after this weeks fishing trip!
