Title: Inuvik
Post by: Homewrecker on Dec 27, 2015, 08:05 PM
Looking for a name of a lake in Inuvik.
About 15 years ago I  was working on a rig that was drilling for gas for the town of Inuvik.
I remember driving on the ice road north for maybe 15 -30 min.
then maybe a mile off the river to the camp and rig.
We had a small lake200 yards from camp where they got water from and in the water pump house they had a hole with a light to keep water hole open. the water man and I pulled out to fish that looked like female grayling but black in colour.
any one know the name of this lake or what kind of fish they were .
Ps
did that pipe line get to town ,or are you still bring in propane

Look familiar? If so, it's an upper part of the peter lake/wolverine creek system. Likely has all kinds of fish.

I was not apart of the drilling team ,just a mechanic that came in to repair  a rental  engine .
After I left ,they desided to fill the engine up with fuel after I showed them the tank was at the back not under the engine where the remote oil sump was.......you guessed it ,they filled the engine with fuel. Band new V12 engine .
They bought me a new engine a week later .

I did catch a grayling on the lake . They had an ice hut built on the lake with a flood light to keep the hole open to pump water out .
