Hey all, Just going to make a quick intro of myself here. at the current time I live in Southern Ontario but if all goes according to plan I will be moving to Prince George, BC in the Fall. BC waters are going to be brand new to me but am looking forward to it fishing it very much. I fish upwards of 50 days a year at the present time, whether it be for a few hours or full days of fishing. Mainly I fish Bass, Walleye,Pike as well as a little steelhead in the rivers, and in the spring flyfish for Rainbows, Brookies and Browns. I am a member of several established boards based mainly in Ontario and look forward to contributing to this one as much as I possibly can, but hope I will learn a fair amount as I am new to alot of the western fishing.

Regards to all,

Bill

Hi Bill,

Moving to Prince George Eh........

Thats a damn fine choice you are a few hours away from some great country in any direction you choose to go.

You will be living in fishing heaven. I will be up your way in the fall so maybe we will meet on the flow.

Welcome to the board.

Hey Bill, welcome aboard. I'm a PG'er, and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. We have some trophy trout (rainbow, brookie and laker) lakes within an hours drive, great bull trout and grayling also about an hour away. Pike and walleye are about 3 or 4 hours north, and of course, possibly the greatest steelhead river and tribs on the planet in the Skeena starting 3 hours west. PM me when you get out here and I would be happy to show you arround some of the country.

Hey guys, I very much appreciate the kind welcome received. I will definitely enjoy meeting some of yas on some water some time in the near future. Glad to hear that I chose the right spot for fishing lol... Now hows the hunting in the area :happy: Also glad to hear that I can hit some walleye lakes, figured there wouldn't be any around there, but I am more than thrilled that there are places for em as they are one of my favorite's to fish for. I would assume that there are plenty of areas to icefish as well in the area is this correct? Thanks again for the warm welcome all

I used to live up in the area about 4 hours west of PG (Babine Lake). I had moose, deer, and bear (black and grizzly) in my yard at one time or other in the five years I was there. I have a good friend in PG and he has managed to shoot moose every year for about the past 12 -15 years in spot you can see from his upper deck at home. The major western flight path for ducks and geese goes right over you. If anything up there is better than the fishing, it would have to be the hunting. Enjoy!! :beerchug:

Fulton River. The worlds largest artificial spawning channel is built at the mouth of the Fulton.
