Whether you’re looking for solitude and a true sense of remoteness, or just an easy place to camp and put your boat in the water, you can find it here. The region is intersected by two highways and contains waters in both the Arctic and Pacific watersheds resulting in a staggering variety of landscapes and waters to fish.
Prince George is surrounded by countless streams, lakes and rivers that range in size from tiny trickling creeks to massive reservoirs. Rainbow trout, both stocked and wild, are abundant in area lakes and can also be found in most rivers and streams. Rainbows are the primary target for most anglers in the region but grayling, burbot, whitefish, bull trout and other char species can also be caught in the waters surrounding Prince George.
Regardless of your preferred angling style or species, opportunity awaits in every direction and the only limitation is your willingness to explore!
Just North of Town is a short fly-fishing adventure film showcasing the spectacular fishing, rivers and wilderness surrounding Prince George, British Columbia. It follows three very different anglers whose shared dedication to fly fishing borders on the obsessive. By observing these anglers as they explore an incredibly beautiful, productive, and little-known fishery ‘just north of town’ we will gain an understanding of why they have chosen to make North Central BC their home, and why it is an incredible place to visit. The film aims to capture the sense of wonder anglers feel when exploring a place for the first time and share that feeling with potential visitors to the region.
Despite their different approaches to life and fly fishing, all three anglers share the same respect and reverence for the fish and the environment they live in. They employ current best practices when handling and releasing fish because they know the key to protecting our extraordinary resource is treating it with the utmost respect. Each has an unquenchable thirst to further their knowledge of the wilderness and knows the only way to truly learn is to humbly go out and experience it.
