Lac Seul is a crescent-shaped reservoir approximately 150 miles long, first flooded in 1935. It is the second largest body of water entirely within Ontario. The lake consists of open water, bays, narrow channels and islands. It is a relatively shallow lake with many rocky shoals. This provides good habitat for walleye and northern pike.
Lac Seul is noted for the remote wilderness character it offers as well as some of the best fishing in Ontario. Other fish species found in Lac Seul are musky, yellow perch, whitefish and rock bass. Lac Seul is located on the former lake bed of glacial Lake Agassiz. Due to this previous lake, much fo the bottom of the lake is covered in thick deposists of lacustrine silts and varved clay of varying thickness. The water of Lac Seul is tea coloured. In clear water, walleye only feed at dusk and dawn due to their light-sensitive eyes, but because of the tea-stained colour of Lac Seul, it provides excellent walleye and northern pike angling opportunities throughout the day.
Lac Seul appreciates some of the finest trophy northern pike and walleye, yet provides the feeling of the vast, practically untouched wilderness.
