This deep glacial lake, located 154 miles /
248 kilometres from Fort Nelson, is just one
of the many fishing opportunities you'll find in
the region and, once into the mountains, you
can find Grayling and other species in just
about all of the rivers and streams accessible
from the Alaska Highway. For those looking
for the ultimate in get-away fishing, fly from
Muncho Lake into a remote, rustic cabin for
a truly secluded experience.
Young or old, you don't want to miss the
opportunity of a relaxing soak in the Liard
River Hot Springs, located 195 miles / 314
kilometres from Fort Nelson. A popular
stop-over destination for travellers of the
Alaska Highway, the Liard River Hot Springs
Provincial Park fills up early each day during
the summer. A short stroll along the boardwalk
takes you through a warm marsh area where
moose can frequently be seen, into dense
forest, and then on to the almost tropical oasis
of lush vegetation and steamy waters.
From Fort Nelson west, most streams and
rivers are fish-bearing and there are stocked
ponds south toward Prophet River. Step off
the highway to the shaded pool of a meandering
river or enjoy the incomparable solitude of
a fly-in trip to a cabin on one of the remote
crystal lakes and rivers. Whatever your
fishing preference, enjoy the tranquility of
the fresh, crisp early summer sunrise
while angling for lake or rainbow trout,
grayling, dolly varden, rocky mountain
whitefish, northern pike or walleye.
