Pike fishing in stained & dirty water from rain

6 posts in this topic

I went pike fishing with my buddy yesterday which was 5 days after the rain storm. Water had about 2 ft of visibility. I threw a big spinner bait and he threw topwater. Not even a follow or bump in 7 hours. Any advice for fishing stained or dirty wanter for pike after the rain?

To me you had the right idea. With poor visibility I would of thrown something with a lot of vibration and bright colors.

^^^^ and flash, either blade or tinsel in a skirt.

 

The more trigger additions you employ in a lure, in adverse conditions, are bound to help.

Not pike specific, I'll usually go with darker patterns in that type of water. In my mind it's the same concept for night fishing, they'll see the darker silhouette easier in the dark.

I never do well in the river I fish for pike when it is high after rain.  I think the pike spread out to all the flooded areas.  The off color doesn't seem to be an issue because I have done well after rain when the river is low.  I just throw big water moving streamers.
