Vini Lake

Vini Lake is 56 hectares with a maximum depth of 33.7 meters and a mean depth of 7.4 meters. Targetable fish species present are lake trout, arctic char and northern pike. Vini Lake was chemically reclaimed in 1988 and became a regular recipient for stocked rainbow trout. In recent years, pike encroachment has compromised the trout stocking program and rainbow stocking has ceased. Today, Vini Lake is a pike and lake trout/arctic char fishery.

**Due to the nature of difficulty regarding access on backcountry lakes, launch access areas are restricted to small watercraft only.
