People used to dry fish near here because T'á(Chinook/King salmon) were less fat this far upriver and, therefore, easier to dry.

Jackie Williams calls this lake Taasleiyí Áayi and it was the name approved for publication in the BC Recreation and Trails brochure and for the BC Recreation Site at this location. However, Antonia Jack also used this Tlingit name to describe Pike Lake during the 1999 Atlin Lake Trip. Since place names teach you about the land and the resources found there, it's not surprising that more than one lake is called the same thing, referring to the species of fish that are found in the lake.
