Heading out there in early September and hoping to do some pike fishing and other fishing. Will need to limit the gear I bring as we will be flying out on a floatplane so wanted to see what gear and flies were recommended. Also interested to see if there are any other fish species in the lakes there, like trout. Any tips would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

I have not been but I have heard about a few fly-in day trips family in Fairbanks have made. Sounds like plenty of pike, and not complicated, though that's autumn up there and I understand the pike migrate out to the river to overwinter around the time of ice-up. A 9wt with an intermediate would be rig #1 on my list, and 10wt with intermediate #2, with floating lines for each.

For other species, look into sheefish.
