Lac Seul is technically a reservoir that was created in the 1930’s when a dam was constructed at the town of Ear Falls. The dam flooded a large area of the English River to create what is now Lac Seul.
Hydro-electricity is generated at the dam, causing the lake level to fluctuate up to 8-feet annually. Low water is in the spring at ice-out, and the high water peak occurs in mid-summer.
The name Lac Seul comes from the French word ‘seulement’ which means ‘Lake Alone’ or ‘Lonely Lake’.
There are many areas on the lake where anglers can find themselves alone in the wilderness, catching fish after fish. Remote and beautiful Lac Seul is a fisherman’s paradise.
