    I wish I could give you help, but I can't. This year, in the next few weeks or so I plan on snow machining out to the lake to catch some pike. My girlfriend's dad has a cabin on Alexander Creek, so I am definitely going to give it a try this winter.

    Please let me know how it is. I read that they estimate 16,000 pike live in that lake, maybe even more in the winter? I think it should be a good time.

    ya there rules make no dam sence there. I think fish and game should take there head out there butt on this one. They spend lots of money on nets all summer long on the river to keep the pike under control but there protected in the lake. hmmmm

    A fish and game buddy told me the reason for the "only 1 over 30 inch rule" was because the big ones eat the smaller ones. And if you just keep all the big ones, you will get a lake full of little hammer handles like in many other lakes.

    I think they are wasting their time/our money netting the creek and sloughs....

    They got rid of the 30" rule. It's now one fish over 27" and as many as you want under 27".

    Still holding to that pipe dream of bringing the salmon runs back.

    Went to Alexander yesterday, had to break trail in so it took us longer to get there than anticipated. Only fished 2 hours since we got there at noon, caught 1 little pike. Only put out 2 tip ups and jigged so I wouldn't get too discouraged by this report, didn't try to hard. Trail was groomed on the way out though and markers are up. Lots of snow in that country.

    bait for for the lake, #1 the lake is not a very deep lake so using hardwear is tuff if there is not suffent water to move your lure that being said it can be don but very short moverment of the lure [ most of the time only about a foot of water under the ice] , #2 cut or whole herring work very well good luck on your trip,
    sucker lake is also produces very well, more water there fish near the stream between the two lakes, there is a strean out of the hills an it flows into frist lake then to the 2 nd lake I think you will do best there in past years there was a snowmachine trail into it,
    good luck let us know how you do

    I wouldn't bother. It's a long bumpy ride out there.
