The community of Tagish is situated around Tagish River (locally known as Six Mile River) the waterway linking Marsh and Tagish Lakes. During the Klondike Gold Rush, the Northwest Mounted Police established an important outpost on the Six Mile to register gold seekers and conduct safety inspections.
Today, the Tagish area is a popular cottage retreat; locals and visitors congregate for lake trout, northern pike and grayling fishing. It is a popular viewing site during the Spring migration of wildfowl, especially the tundra and Trumpeter swans.
Tagish outdoor adventures are geared to water activities and camping, with visitor services that include a campground, cabins and bed and breakfasts, boat rentals, a marina and guided fishing tours.
