Also known as Portage La Loche. Named after the methye
or loche (Lota maculosa), which has always been abundant in
neighbouring waters. This portage was an important point in the palmy
days of the fur trade. It leads from the Churchill to the Clearwater,
and so to the Athabaska and the immense systems of northern and western
waterways that lie beyond. It was noted for its beautiful scenery, which
has been described or mentioned by Mackenzie, Franklin, Back, and other
northern travellers. It was first crossed by Peter Pond in 1778. The
route has now been abandoned for some years, supplies for the northern
posts of the Hudson's Bay Company being transported overland from
Edmonton to Athabaska Landing, and thence down the Athabaska. =Bib.=:
