Gull Lake

Rating - Good   

Friday, Jul 23 2021
This 2,030 acre lake is deeper than its large-lake neighbor with a maximum depth of 110 feet. It too crosses two counties; Barry and Kalamazoo, and - according to Diana - is referred to as a two-story fishery."That means it has an oxygenated cold-water component which allows us to stock coldwater species there."With the presence of trout species that gives Gull Lake inland trout and salmon regulations, more specifically those listed for Type E lakes. For all rules and regulations, check out the 2016-2017 Michigan Fishing Guide."We were stocking lake trout at Gull Lake, either as yearlings or as the occasional adult broodstock," Diana explained. "While the broodstock were being caught, we weren't seeing much success with yearling lake trout plants there so when we were able to capitalize on available excess steelhead from Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery in 2017 we jumped at the chance."Just as with Gun Lake, it should be noted that Gull Lake is one of the most popular waterbodies in the state for bass tournaments. According to the Michigan Fishing Tournament Information System these two lakes tied for seventh place on the list of 20 most popular tournament locations in 2016, each hosting 32 tournaments.Outside of the open water season it's popular with ice anglers. Access for Gull Lake is available through the Prairieville Township site located on the north side of the lake (daily fee required). This location features a boat wash station - perfect for those looking to help combat aquatic invasive species.
