About Montana Pikemasters
The Billings Chapter of Montana Pikemasters was established in May of 1999. After many conversations with Northern Pike Anglers, it was decided that a Pike Club should be established. Pikemasters became a non-profit organization and incorporated in 2001.
The Billings Chapter is dedicated to all the Pike Anglers in the state of Montana. It is our belief that Pike are one of the most fascinating and exciting game fish in North America today. These fish can grow to awesome proportions and are notorious for their swift speed, overwhelming power and explosive strikes.
Our goal is to educate and inform anglers about the importance of sport fishing in Montana, introduce a new generation to fishing, educate youth to respect property owners, public lands, all wildlife, and learn to abide by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (MFWP) Laws.
Montana Pikemasters support fishing, hunting, recreational programs, and other non-profit objectives.
Montana Pikemasters proudly supports the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Lake Elmo Improvement Project by donating $10,000 towards the design of the lake. (December 2020).
Montana Pikemasters has completed several major projects around the area that have benefited both cold and warm water species. Our Members are always ready to join hands with any other sportsmen’s group to complete any project that will enhance fishing in Montana. We wish to extend an invitation to you to join us in our efforts throughout the state.
