Question on whitecourt
« on: March 19, 2013, 09:49:45 PM »
Hey everyone,

I have been looking to relocate with the family to another place in Alberta, obviously pending if I can find a job in that town. I MIGHT have a pretty good gig and it would require me to move to whitecourt. I have been there and fox but was curious as to what living there is like? I have fished a little down the bigstone but that all other then work for a short bit there. I have 2 girls and a wife so want to be somewhere where the girls will have activities and such.

Any help is appreciated

Whitecourt area has lot of places to fish. Carson located just outside of the town is popular for catching rainbows. Stocking numbers are over 50,000 plus fish.
There is numerous rivers and creeks you can fish as well. Some of the areas also have snow mobile trails as well. :)
 A google search will show more recreation idea's for that area.

Awesome thank you very much for that. All I do is flyfish and hunt, same with the wife, I got her addicted as well, mostly want a place that is good for the kids to, they are 2 and 4 and one wants to be in dance, soccer etc. She also wants to go hunting with dad this year and shes old enough to understand the basics at 4 years old which is great. So might take her for some grouse.

thanks again guys,

Sonny

Why is fox creek yuck??? Am I missing something? Sorry, not familiar with the area, but have also considered the whitecourt/athabasca/barrhead and westlock areas. Fox creek was in the vicinity, so just wondering if there's something I should know about that area?

Good luck with the job interview and welcome to AS! That's great you're getting your children involved and that they show an interest :) this forum will difinitely make sure you find places to recreate if you choose to move up there lol.
