GP becoming tourist destination Study shows the vast majority of GP visitors – approximately 76% – are Albertans, with 19% coming from the rest of Canada, 4% from the United States, and 1% from overseas. Remo Zaccagna Herald-Tribune staff The tourism sector is well on its way to becoming the fourth pillar of industry in the region, according to a study released by the Grande Prairie Regional Tourism Association on earlier this month. The study, undertaken by Burlington, Ont.-based Econometric Research Ltd., showed that more than 581,000 people visited the Grande Prairie region in 2008 (the last available data from three surveys done by Statistics Canada) and spent a shade less than $111 million. A visitor is defined as any nonresident of the Grande Prairie region - classified as Census Division 19, which stretches from the B.C. border to the M.D. of Smoky River, and includes the MD. of Sad-
dle Hills and M.D. of Peace – to have visited on at least a day-trip and spent mone y on a n ything from restaurants to concerts to accom modations. Ken loudon It was the first study of its nature commissioned by the GPRTA, and president Ken Loudon said the results should alert local operators to the importance of the industry to the area. “Look at the contribution that we’re bringing to the local businesses, restaurants, hotels, stores, and all the attractions that we have,” Loudon said. “For them to realize the impact of dollars that are actually being infused into the community, it’s quite staggering
quite frankly. “This is going to spark people’s enthusiasm to recognize that there is so much more to be gained.” Dr. Atif Kubursi, who put the study together, said by its nature, tourism is an example of income elasticity. “W hich mea ns if income increases by 1%, tourism expend it u res t y pica l ly i nc rease by more than 1%. And when income declines, tourism declines by more than the decline,” he said. Therefore, he said, within the context of where the economy was headed in 2008, the figures mean that as the economy regains its vigour, tourism numbers should increase in lock step. And that’s music to Loudon’s ears. “It was actually one of our lowest industry years, and so it gives us a

phenomenally solid and realistic baseline,” he said. “From that baseline, when things are up, we know that these numbers are going to go higher than what we have already had. “And considering the year of 2008, the numbers that we have been presented with speak huge volumes of the economic impact to this region.” T he st ud y showed t he v a st majorit y of v isitors – approx imately 76% – are Albertans, with 19% coming from the rest of Canada, 4% from the United States, and 1% from overseas. In terms of expenditures, the numbers broke down similarly, with Albertans spending $75 million, other Canadians $23 million, Americans $10.5 million, and overseas visitors $2 million. A majority of Albertan visitors were between the ages of 25 to 44, while the rest of Canada came from an older demographic. Virtually all American visitors were older than 35. The specificity of the study will be an invaluable tool for local operators in terms of marketing themselves in the future, said tourism association director Andy Doucette of Ramada Inns & Suites. “I think the best way to use this informat ion is just to become smarter about spending dollars,” he said. “In the past, I know a lot of the hoteliers in town would just split up their marketing budget and try to cover as much ground as possible, but with this analysis, we should be able to better target a market that has potential and just makes us become smarter spenders.” That sentiment was echoed by Jason Halwa, GPRTA vice-president and operations manager at Country Roads RV Park.
“Now we at least have a base to go on to whom we can market to, who we’re spending these marketing dollars on,” he said. “Before we were ma rket i ng blindly, you have whatever amount of money that you have to put out there and you don’t k now who you’re marketing to. You’re just hoping that you catch somebody that’s going to stop.” “This will bring RVs and people here, put them in beds, and put them in the parks.” Walter Paszkowski, County of Grande Prairie economic development officer, said the report will benefit the county in its efforts to market its attractions, such as the future Pipestone Creek dinosaur museum, to an outside audience. “The county is very interested in developing this and has worked very closely with the tourism people here through the years, but it’s something that’s moving along, and ultimately at the end of the day this will really be a major step forward,” he said. Kubursi said the study took three months to complete, and includes the creation of software for the GPRTA to use in future analysis. “They can use it in the future to assess any impacts of any event or program. So it is much more than just a report. The report is just an application of the system,” he said. Loudon could not give exact figures as to the cost of the project, but said the time was right for the GPRTA to undertake such a report for the first time. “This whole thing came about because we as an organization were restructuring and reevaluating everything that we’re doing and said ‘we need to have more facts and details.’ Let’s get the job done and let’s get it done right.” email@example.com

Where to cast a line this season? Supplied by GPRTA
Spring Lake is a small stocked lake located about one and a half hours drive from Grande Prairie. Go west from Grande Prairie to the Wembley corner, north to LaGlace, then west through Valhalla until you come to the sign pointing north to Spring Lake. You will follow this gravel road several miles north until you come to the lake. It is located in a small ravine in a heavily forested area, making it a deep lake with pristine surroundings. There is a small managed campground with a day use area, a large parking lot and a primitive boat launch area with a wharf. Power boats are not allowed. The lake typically has open water fishing by mid May and usually stays open until late October. It is stocked with rainbow and brook trout, which makes for some challenging fishing. The shoreline is very shallow at the sound end by the boat launch-

The heavy weed growth away from the deeper parts of the lake are as much shoreline; hence why it has good as seventy feet and then the north fishing for the entire season. end of the lake is shallow again. East Dollar Lake There are several bank beaver Located about an hour’s drive houses around the lake, which can east of Grande Prairie on Highway be good areas to fish for the elusive 43 towards Valleyview then another trout and trigger a strike. Since it is 20 minutes, just off the west side
of the highway is a small stocked pond known to locals as East Dollar Lake. The pond is currently stocked with rainbow and brown trout. There are actually two ponds which are connected by a narrow passageway that does have water in it when the water tables are high. Even though the second pond is sometimes accessible and does have a sufficient supply of excellent trout food, (millions of fresh water shrimp), the trout don’t seem to stay in this pond, mostly due to it being so shallow and high weed growth and low oxygen levels. The east pond, known as East Dollar is much deeper with water that remains clear throughout the summer months. The pond is surrounded with a dense shoreline of willows, cattails and heavy weed growth. There is a small, primitive boat launching area and only electric trolling motors are allowed. Larger boats are not recommended due to the soft muddy shoreline at the launching area. There is a small parking lot and day use area with biffies and garbage containers, but no provision for
overnight camping. As this is a small pond, a half dozen folks fishing at any given time is considered a crowd. This is a great place to practise fly casting and try your luck at landing a lively rainbow or one of those elusive brown trout. Try dropping your favourite dry flies into the edge of the weeds around the shoreline, and you may be lucky enough to entice one of the wary brown trout to take the fake. Move out into the deeper water with a sinking tip fly line and wet flies to try catching a feisty rainbow on a marabou leech or woolly worm. Of course, the traditional shrimp patterns work well for both species in this pond. As with any good fishing lake, there are definite hot spots in this in this pond which can really surprise you with fish of amazing action and size. If you want to know where they are, you will have to pack up your gear and try this pond out for yourself. It won’t take more than one circuit around the pond for you to be hooked as much as the fish you catch.

Endless possibilities in the Peace waterways ...Continued from Page 4
It must first be said that this is one of the best walleye lakes in the west (located about 45 minutes east of Grande Prairie off Highway 43). There are many access points with quality boat launches including two provincial parks. This is a sizeable lake (approximately 9 km x 3km) with variable shorelines, cottages and feeder creeks that add structure to this fishing hotbed. It is extremely important to know how fishing regulations apply to your catch on this lake. Make sure you read carefully on slot size and harvest number as they change during the summer. A hydro-graphic map of the lake is a must (one is provided beside the boat launches) due to the bottom changes of the lake. Between sand, weed, rock, and variable depths of 3 to 40 feet, a multitude of zones in the lake can be fished successfully from boat, shore, dingy or float tube. Be cautious of winds that can come up quickly and create quite a heavy chop on the water with no islands to hide behind. A variety of fishing techniques and baits prove effective spring, summer, and fall. This includes good fly fishing with leech or minnow patters from first ice out to mid-summer on the weed bed flats and drop-offs. Pike are most common on the fly but walleye can be plentiful as well if you hit them on the feed. Be aware of blue green algae blooms in mid-summer as the water warms. Get yourself a spot at one of the local campgrounds and enjoy fishing, hiking, and bird watching in this wonderful area.
Swan Lake is the most publicized lake in the Peace Country. The reason why will be most evident after you enjoy a fishing experience at this lake. From Grande Prairie, travel east approximately 72 km on Highway 43 to the small hamlet of Ridgevalley. From Ridgevalley south 16 km on a well maintained gravel road will direct you to
the largest rainbow trout fishing in the region. Presently the recreation area is unsupervised and maintenance is minimal. A few rustic campsites exist amongst the trees next to the lake. Service does not exist, but you will find a washroom, fish cleaning stand, and ocasionally some wood. Access to the lake is a steep ramp and a muddy shoreline. Electric motors are requested as a power source. Acquiring the name Swan Lake in 1952 would suggest you may view some of these prestigious birds; regrettably, the increasing amount of boats and fishing activity prohibits that. However, there is a bald eagle family usually raising its young at the east end of the lake. The lake is shallow, but aeration allows the fish to thrive all year. The abundance of natural feed in this lake produces rainbow trout from an average of two pounds up to eight or nine pounds. Early spring fishing can produce results with leeches, shrimp, bright olive nymphs, and a sinking tip line produces better success. May and June are your best months for clear water, as the lake produces a heavy algae bloom July through September. During this time brightly coloured flies, streamers, and wooly worms are successful. The popularity of this lake is a direct reflection of the size of rainbow. Some days it may appear congested to a fly fisherman in a belly boat due to the number of aluminum boats cruising the lake. With proper courtesy there is space for everyone to enjoy a rewarding day of fishing.
Figure Eight Lake
One of the many stocked lakes in the Mighty Peace Country is Figure Eight Lake. Located just off a secondary highway, about half an hour drive north and west of Fairview. The lake is stocked with rainbow and brown trout, which have been known to reach sizes of 22 inches or more. There is a small campground on the west side of the lake and a small boat launching area there with a wharf. There are
also a couple of picnicking areas with beach frontage. The lake is quite shallow, therefore only smaller boats are recommended. Because the lake is shallow, the best fishing is usually in the spring before the weeds get heavy, or in the lake fall after the weeds die down. The winter is usually gone about the first part of May and it starts to freeze up late October. As the water warms up and it gets into early June, both the weed growth and the insect activity increases in the lake. The fish become more active also as they chase after the smorgasbord of feed around them. They soon become selective in what they like best and it becomes more difficult to find the right fly and be able to present it properly. Dry flies will worth to catch brown trout in the shallows, near the shoreline. To get a hit in the deeper water you will need to use a sink tip line and do a slower presentation with a caddis type fly. Rainbow trout will hit on almost any fly you use in this lake, providing you use the appropriate presentation. Summer fishing can be difficult because of the heavy weed growth in this lake, but it is possible if you can fish between those nasty weed beds. After the weeds die off in late fall, the fishing improves again and you can revert back to techniques that worked for early spring fishing. Figure Eight Lake is also a popular winter recreation area for the ice fishing. The lake is aerated to maintain the fish over the winter. If you are looking for variety in your trout fishing and new challenges, try catching a large brown trout in this beautiful Peace County lake. It is unfortunately one of the very few lakes in the area where brown trout can still be found.
The Grovedale Fish Pond
Located just 20 km south of Grande Prairie on Highway 40. The Grovedale Pond is a perfect location for day use. Offering visitors basic services with water stocked with trout by Alberta Fish and Wildlife. Grovedale Pond is also a great place for a quiet family picnic.

Does the call of the wild, call out to you? Well, then the region around Grande Prairie would be the one calling you. The Grande Prairie region is the perfect place if you love the wilderness and big game hunting.
