Prince George, Fishing

A couple of times over the summer, I took advantage of Tourism Prince George's free fishing rods (yes, free!) and tried fishing at 2 lakes right within city limits.
My first try, I headed to Ferguson Lake, located north of the city. This lake has a nice little dock and is stocked with trout. My bait apparently wasn't quite tastey enough, but the 6-year old kid next to me was having a really good day! Hmmph.
My next fishing excursion was at Shane Lake, within the Forests for the World park. The lake is just a 10 minute walk in from the parking lot and also has a dock to fish from. The trout here stole the bait right off my hook, but nothing more than a nibble for this amateur.
Obviously I need to work on my fishing skills, so I'll have to borrow Tourism PG's rods again sometime!Editor's note: Learn more about fishing in Prince George here.
