The majestic view of glacial-fed Chilko Lake in central British Columbia. Duff Island is home to several bald eagles which frequent the area. The surrounding mountain peaks rise to more than 8000 feet. The lake itself is more than 80 km long and up to 5 km wide and is one of the deepest in the province, more than 1200 feet. It's also the largest alpine lake in Canada with water so clear you can see more than 50 feet down. There are also gigantic sturgeon in the lake. The lake has also one of the largest salmon runs, consistently more than 500,000 sockeye migrate to the lake each fall. The Rainbow Trout in the lake also grow to considerable size...up to 15 pounds or more.
