Salmon Inlet is an fjord branching east from Sechelt Inlet in the British Columbia, Canada.[1] Its companion, Narrows Inlet, another side-inlet of Sechelt Inlet, lies roughly 25 miles (40 km) north.[2] Misery and Sechelt Creeks flow freely into the inlet, while the Clowhom River flows in from the artificial Clowhom Lake, formed by a small hydroelectric power development.[3] The fjord is 23 kilometres (14 mi) long; Clowhom Lake, covering a waterfall on the Clowhom River, stretches a further 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) to the western base of Mount Tantalus, which is best known from the direction of Squamish and the Cheakamus Canyon stretch of BC Hwy 99. Heavily affected by logging and milling operations, the inlet is split almost into two portions by an alluvial fan spreading from the mouth of Sechelt Creek.[4]
