    well if you feel I am wrong please feel free to pm the guy and help him out. Maybe there is big pike in there, but based off the few times I have been there I had no problem finding them with a float tube/cataraft, there just wasn't any size to them.

    There's bigger fish in there. Get them in the spring and fall.

    i have caught pike up to 35 inches in lower fire lake. they are in there they are just few and far between. try throwing a jointed rapala about 3 inches long. also i have had good luck on dolly lammas and large sculpine patterns if your into fly fishing.
    sand lake used to be a good spot for pike before they poisoned it. i wander how that worked out for them.

    Pike fishing in lower fire has really gone to hell recently, but who knows it could be coming back. And yes there were some giant fish in it, just not many.
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Yea, Anchorage is a BORING place to be unless your content to catch Rainbows and little Salmon. Go north.

    I have fished Stormy Lake in the north Kenai area several times and caught some fairly decent Northern Pike (5-8 lbs.) and occasionally larger.
