  The upper St. Lawrence River is widely known for its world-class native strain muskellunge (Esoxmasquinongy, Mitchell) population and fishery. This population has been proactively managedthrough the efforts of the international St. Lawrence River Esocid Working Group (SLREWG) thatled to the development of muskellunge management plans (Panek , LaPan and Penney Spawning Moves Northern pike are considered a cool-water fish. Their mating ritual takes place immediately following ice out sometime between April and early May depending on latitude; the optimal temperature range for spawning is between to 52 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring flooding and high-water levels contribute to pike spawning ://

The Northern Pike is one of the largest gamefish in the Midwest. It feeds continuously through the day, which makes it popular with fishermen. This fish can eat fish up to 18 “ long, ducks and even fully grown Muskrats. Marshes and flooded lowlands generally provide the spawning habitat for Northern Pike; so many ponds and lakes do not have the proper environment for their reproduction   Three key species, northern pike, muskellunge, and walleye have significant management concerns being addressed by this research effort. In recent decades considerable changes have occurred to the immense aquatic resource of the St. Lawrence River. Major perturbations include hydrologic alteration via damming and water level control, invasive and exotic species introductions, climate

  between Northern Pike and Common Carp was minimal, suggesting that management strategies using removable barriers, for example, could be used to control invasive Common Carp without affecting native Northern Pike populations. Inundated floodplains, backwaters, marshes, and wetlands are important spawning habitats for many species of temperate   Spawning Northern Pike often avoid dense stands of emergent cattail Typha spp. (Casselman and Lewis ), as the rigid stem structure and high stem densities likely inhibit their movement and spawning activity. Northern Pike population declines in some regions of the Great Lakes have been partially attributed to the et

John E. Williams and Buddy L. Jacob Abstract.-The northern pike is a favored game fish. Also it appears to serve as an important predator in keeping yellow perch populations under control, but it has little effect on bluegill populations. Pike populations are at low levels in most lakes because Below is fisheries biologist Chris McDowell with one of the Northern Pike that will be used for spawning in Maintaining existing Northern Pike fisheries through marsh management and fingerling stocking will ensure angler access to a unique and popular sport fishery.

Please contact the The five categories of factors thought to influence northern pike production were spawning stock, aquatic vegetation, egg survival, food supply, and physical and chemical factors.

It was not possible from the data collected on these factors to make quantitative predictions on the number of northern pike ?type=div&did=ECONATRES. Management in Other States Northern pike have been widely distributed outside their historic range to create popular spawning marshes using water level control structures is also used to propagate pike.

Sincenorthern pike spawning has been maintained and/or enhanced by the construction of spawning marshes within the Conesus Inlet Wildlife Management Area (WMA). In the spring, northern pike and walleye utilize the clear waters of Conesus The Connecticut DEEP Fisheries Division (FD) has created a number of successful Northern Pike fisheries as evidenced by angler survey results and numerous trophy fish awards.

However, variable production of pike fingerlings in managed marshes remains a challenge to effective management of Connecticut pike ://?. ies Management PUBL‐FM‐ July Northern pike are far less wary than muskellunge: on average, it takes about eight hours of fishing to hook a northern, while anglers must log nearly hours on the water to get a glimpse of a muskellunge.

Northern Pike can sustain themselves naturally without the aid of artificial spawning marshes. There is also substantial discussion in the Lake Missaukee file (MDNR office, Cadillac) from the early s regarding extensive wetland filling and degradation along the north shore of the lake forand Northern Pike.

SPAWNING HABITAT IDENTIFICATION Conserving and restoring spawning habitat is a top priority for Muskellunge and Northern Pike management.

To conserve these habitats, managers must first know spawning locations and what features characterize optimal spawning habitat.
