The lake contains large rainbow trout to 12+ lbs., cutthroat to 2-1/2 lbs. and Lake Char that are capable of reaching 35 lbs. Also the legend of Babalina a great monster living somewhere in the depths.
This lake is 200 km (124 miles) long and about 200 metres (600 feet) deep and the fishing is fabulous in certain areas. One of the reasons for such great fishing is the Sockeye salmon which return by the tens of thousands come home in Fall to spawn in the creeks that feed into Babine Lake.
There have been several UFO sightings in the last few years situated over the island on the left.
GOLD SAUCER ABOVE CANADIAN COPPER MINE
The witness was driving with his partner on October 22, 2002, when they observed a large, glowing, orange-gold saucer-shaped object hovering right over the top of the old Bell Copper Mine, which is located on an island in Babine Lake.
"The witnesses pulled over and watched the object hover low to the ground, then rise up very slowly, come to a complete stop, move sideways, then stop and descend again. The lights' intensity grew as the witnesses watched, and the object moved out over the lake and stopped for a few seconds, then went back to hover over the top of the mine once again.
"The witnesses said the ground beneath and around the object was lit up for a considerable distance, and the brightness of the craft caused it to cast a strong reflection on the lake. The men watched for about seven minutes, until it rose up and departed slowly, heading north, maintaining a low altitude until it was out of their sight."
"The craft was sitting over the closed Bell Copper Mine, where numerous fossils have been found, including mammoth bones." Ufology Resource Centre
This is the same area where the new gold and copper mine is scheduled to open in 2011, construction beginning this year.
