The Prince George area has a number of lakes and some rivers that offer abundant freshwater fishing opportunities near town or within an hour's drive of the city.
Fishing trips can also be arranged via local suppliers.
Highlight Fishing Spots
Ferguson Lake (Highway 97 north, left on Kelly Rd 1km/0.6mi) is the first fishery within Prince George city limits. The lake is stocked with brook and rainbow trout. It has a new fishing dock, clean water, and a park. Motorized boats are not allowed on this lake.
Eena Lake (north on Highway 97 to Chief Lake Rd, Eena Lake Rd. Woods Rd and Quinn Rd) is a beautiful site with a gravel boat launch. This lake is a great place for family fishing, with a quieter atmosphere than other fully motorized lakes. The only motorized boats permitted on Eena Lake are electric boats. Rainbow trout is the main fish found at Eena Lake.
