Sorry. I should have said more variety of work in the south. I guess it really depends on what kind of work and experience you have. More resource work in the north, more office jobs in the south.Actually there is a tonne of work up here right now, at least in the Northwest where I live. And in the north east.
Maybe not so much in Atlin if that is what you mean.
I retired from Ontario 6 years ago and have not regretted a single second. I moved to Vancouver Island to Campbell River and have enjoyed almost 12 months each year of fly fishing for one species or another. Yes the Steelhead fishing isn't what it was but there are still summer and winter runs on some beautiful rivers. There is also some amazing Coho and Pinks Salmon available on the beaches and rivers which are so much fun on the fly. We also have sea run Cutthroat fishing year round on a 5 wt. are a blast. The house prices you can check out on line I don't know about the employment situation obviously. The Skeena area is definitely the best IMO for Steelhead but it is not that far, a crew of us go up for a week every year. We have a fly fishing club just to let you know.hey guys,
So ive decided to move to BC, and im looking for the ideal location for year round fishing. Idealy with in an hours drive. anyone have any suggestions?
I might add my number one target would be steelhead!!! :chuckle::chuckle:
Agree 100%As a retiree living on the Skeena river in Terrace for the last 3 years, let me recommend....... the Island. :devil:
Right now there is plenty of work but housing is an issue as the rentals have tripled in the last 24 months. Home prices are off the charts compared to a few years ago. Plenty of fish and lots of fisherman, leave all expectations of solitude in NB.
