The McGregor River is a tributary of the Fraser River in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

The McGregor River was named for the Provincial Land Surveyor Captain James Herrick McGregor, who fought and died in 1915 at the Second Battle of Ypres, in Belgian Flanders.[2]

Course[edit]

The McGregor River originates in Wishaw Lake, a remote lake located in Kakwa Provincial Park and Protected Area and flows generally west and northwest to join the Fraser River northeast of Prince George.
