Alaska Northern Pike | Fishing Spots and Maps

angler caught northern pike in alaska lake

Alaskan northern pike can reach lengths of 48 inches and weight up to 40 lbs. Average specimens are 15 to 24 inches and weight between 5 and 10 lbs. Pike up to 20 pounds (9 kilograms) are common catches in Alaskan rivers, streams and lakes. These large fish are popular among Alaska’s sports fisherman and subsistence anglers.

Pike are native to most of Alaska. They are non-native in Southcentral and Southeastern Alaska where they are considered an invasive species. To protect and restore native salmon and trout populations, efforts are underway to eradicate Northern pike from select waterways in the Susitna River drainage, several lakes in the Anchorage area and the Kenai Peninsula. Notwithstanding eradication measures, the Susitna River drainage, Anchorage area and Kenai Peninsula still provide excellent pike fishing opportunities.

The following interactive map provides markers and GPS coordinates for confirmed and reported populations of Northern pike throughout Alaska’s interior and Southcentral regions. Click on a map marker for location details.
