Hey all.. I am wondering what kind of fishing I can expect from Prince George and what kind of flies I should be tying up... May or may not have lots now but depends on all of your hatches. Anyspecies found in the PG area would be nice to know. Thanks again

I've done a lot of fly fishing in that area in the last 10 - 12 years as I have inlaws that live there.
When will you be there?
I stock the usual patterns, Tom Thumb, half back, chrimonid (green, black and red), Spratley, etc.
All seem to work just as they work throughout most of the province.
The lakes in the area are not open yet and probably not for a while as my Brother in law says it's going to be a very late spring if this weather holds.
He drove down on the weekend and stopped at Dragon Lake in Quesnel and was amazed at the amount of ice still on it. :-[

Hey Bill, when you get out to PG you will be able to buy a Backroads map book for the PG region. it will give you information regarding your region and also some very good maps in your area. ofcourse you will also need to pick up a regulation booklet aswell, so that when you are looking at the map you can cross reference what and how you can fish.

Bill - The Backroad Mapbook you want for the PG area is Volume 6 - Central BC. You caqn get it at chapters.ca http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books...%27&sterm=backroad+mapbook+central+bc+-+Books

There are others that you can look at aqs well. Cariboo and Thompson Okanagan are the next 2 books moving south from PG and the Northern BC book covers the area North. Good fun just browsing through. The books not only give you the maps of the area, but short synopsises (sp) of lakes, camping, trails, etc.

When you purchase the backroads map book, don't forget to check the online update pages for your region. I just found out a crap-load of lakes on Vancouver Island are no longer open to the public as TimberWest now owns the land :wallbash: :wallbash:

There's a few smaller lakes out the Chief Lake Road past the Ness Lake turn off. Try Vivan Lake it's got brookies and bows in it. Also try Hart out the north on 97, on the right just before the village of Bear Lake. Nice size bows but finicky. It's only 200 meters on a turn off then across the RR tracks another 50 or so. Well worn path and small dock/launch area last time I was there. No motors allowed.
They are good evening/after supper lakes.
Check out Anglers Atlas for info on the lakes if it's there. http://www.anglersatlas.com/
