Bove Island on the Tagish Lake
Tagish Lake is a lake in the Yukon Territory and northern British Columbia, Canada. The lake is more than 100 km (62 mi) long and about 2 km wide.
It has two arms, the Taku Arm in the east which is very long and mostly in British Columbia and Windy Arm in the west, mostly in the Yukon. The Klondike Highway runs along Windy Arm south of Carcross. Bennett Lake flows into Tagish Lake, so the northern portion of Tagish Lake was part of the route to the Klondike used by gold-seekers during the Klondike Gold Rush.
The meteorite 
On January 18, 2000, a carbonaceous chondrite meteorite now known as "Tagish Lake", fell on the frozen surface of the Taku Arm. A number of fragments were recovered and studied by researchers from U of C, UWO, and NASA; the meteorite currently resides in the University of Alberta meteorite collection.
The name 
The lake is named for the Tagish people. Tagish means fish trap in the old Tagish language, an Athabascan language.  Other sources translate Tagish as "it (spring ice) is breaking up" .
Tagish lies in the path of migratory swans that come every spring to wait out the melting of the more Northern Lakes.
Tagish is also home to the Southern Lakes with trophy fishing.
