Gass Lake

Gass Lake is 13.6 hectares with a maximum depth of 15.6 meters and a mean depth of 2.7 meters. Targetable fish species present are rainbow trout and tiger trout. Gass Lake is arguably the most underrated tiger trout fishery in the province. The trail from the road is short which is commonly walked by anglers. Gass Lake also provides real productive shore fishing potential especially along the east shore. Don’t forget a landing net and camera or you’ll regret it.**Due to the nature of difficulty regarding access on backcountry lakes, launch access areas are restricted to small watercraft only.
