Claire Lake – The Northern Tutchone name for this lake is Deyę, with no English translation because of its antiquity. It is one of several fishing lakes utilized traditionally by people from Big Salmon and Little Salmon villages. The English name, Claire Lake, is believed to derive from the name of a prospector who was reported to be in the region in the early 1900s.
