British Columbia, Canada
Want something exotic?
Try Eutsuk Lake. This 120-mile long body of water lies in the northern
end of Tweedsmuir Park in west-central BC, and offers experiences
seldom found anywhere in the world
Reaching it is a story in itself. Why take a plane or helicopter
when you can enjoy 2 to 3 hours of boat travel on Ootsa Lake, although
there is danger of encountering partially- submerged floating driftwood.
Then you participate in a ¾-mile portage using a narrow railroad
line, before dropping into the cold water of Eutsuk.
Fishing is fantastic. The rainbows are large, they're feisty, and
they're all over the lake. At the west end, while standing in your
boat you can chip ice off a glacier for your drink. In the middle
section of the lake you can trace through sonar the top of an old
volcano which still has jagged edges rising to within 27 feet of
the lake surface.
Eagles, moose and bears can be spotted almost anywhere along the
lake shore. Add fresh blueberries, saskatoons, or huckleberries
to a fresh-fish barbeque, and your dreams are fulfilled beyond expectation.
Camping on a spit of land that juts out into the lake, offering
clear lake views east, south and west, you will make a wish to stay
