ive seen 1 or 2 pictures of pike from hopewell. somehow i found an older picture on google when i was doing so reasearch about ice fishing the lake of a guy who caught a nice 1 with a crooked back on a tip up.. i feel like there are very few. there is ateast 1 musky in there also. seen some reports of pickerel. if you go through all the older posts n here and the ice fishing reports you will find some info
If you look at the latest issue of PA Outdoor News there is a pic (on the back page) of a girl holding a 43" Musky caught at Hopewell Lake last August. It was also a purebred, not a tiger musky. I have seen musky's in Hopewell a time or two over the past couple of years but never caught one myself. I personally have caught a few small pickerel out of Hopewell though. I don't think there's near as many toothy fish in there like there were years ago but they are still swimming around in there.
It has been many moons but I have caught 2 pike in Hopewell in the past. Both were in the Fall, both were not very big...maybe 26-28". They were Northern pike...not pickerel nor muskies. It would be cool if any remain but I know stocking them ceased a long time ago.
