Lac SeulFirst flooded in 1935, this 150km long crescent-shaped reservoir is the second largest body of water completely contained in the province of Ontario. The lake consists of open water, bays, natural channels and islands. Despite its expansive size, Lac Seul is relatively shallow and rocky , making it the perfect haven for both walleye and northern pike, Other fish species such as muskie, yellow perch, smallmouth bass and whitefish can be found within the lake. Lac Seul is noted for the remote wilderness character it offers as well as as some of the best fishing in Ontario. Lac Seul also happens to be located on the former lake bed of the glacial lake, Lake Agassiz. Due to this previous lake, much of the bottom of the lake is covered with thick deposits of lacustrine silts and varved clay of varying thickness. The water of Lac Seul is tea colored. because of the color, it provides excellent walleye and northern pike angling throughout the day.
