Tabor Lake, Fraser-Fort George D, Prince George, BC
"Tabor Lake, close to Prince George, is a great all-around location. It is close to town and amenities, making it perfect for a quick trip after work or on weekends. Flies and lures both work well. “Tabor is a great fishing lake,” says Dan Moffat from Northern Hardware. Both flies and lures are good choices, and with so many hatches, anglers can feel free to experiment. “Try Hotshots, or Flatfish, or any attracting gang troll,” he suggests.
As for flies, “there are 40 different hatches on Tabor Lake,” meaning that there is always something going on. Fly fishers will easily find something that works. “The fishing on Tabor Lake is always reliable,” he adds.
If you want to stick with a standard, leeches are good early-season patterns, Moffat advises.
There are ample shore-fishing opportunities on Tabor Lake, making it an ideal place for kids to learn. There are no particular restrictions on the lake so children will have fun learning here." -The Angler's Atlas
