Pike fishing has its niche in the fly fishing community.  We wouldn’t say that it is popular, but there are plenty of anglers that enjoy using a fly rod to land a northern pike.  The best time to target northern pike on a fly rod is during the spawning period.  You will find plenty of fish in the shallows at this time and they will attack almost anything that resembles food.  Poppers and streamers work well for northern pike during the spawn.  Sometimes, pike will attack any top water popper or fly that disturbs their area.  Other times, it will be tough to get a top water strike.  This is the time to fish with a streamer to mimic small bait fish.

If I am just targeting big pike, that will definitely change what baits I will be throwing.  I’m not looking for action at this point, but I do usually choose big fish baits that will still give me some action while searching for the big fish.  These 3 are my go to big pike lures that will still get you plenty of bites in between big fish bites.
