Dating back to 1826 with the original name of Kinashingiquash Lake and being a famous logging route, Gull Lake has a long history. Set between the town of Minden and the settlement of Moore Falls, Gull Lake offers a large body of water with sandy shallow shorelines and a deep center. Take the boat right into town via the Gull River and access all the shops and restaurants main street Minden has to offer. With several boat launches along the lake and river the lake is very accessible.
For fishing enthusiasts, the lake offers a great selection. Lake trout is perhaps the most sought-after sportfish in Gull Lake and a natural population of lake trout remain in the lake. Fishing is best during the winter ice fishing season and holds until just after ice off. Gull Lake also offers both smallmouth and largemouth bass. There is plenty of fine bass structure found around the big lake and anglers should work the weedy bays, the rocky drop offs or even the man-made structures such as boat docks.
In order to protect the natural lake trout population of Gull Lake, slot size restrictions and special ice fishing regulations have been established. Check the provincial fishing regulations summary for details and please practice catch and release for these fragile trout.
