Gull Lake Fishing
You can fish from the shore, or boat in this smaller loop lake. Gull Lake Marina has a launch and rentals, or you can launch your own float from the park. You can also drive down to the free-to-use Gull Lake Meadows car top boat launch, this is a narrow dirt road not suited for trailers. If you are shore fishing, please remember to pick up your trash and poop from the Gull Lake area. So much trash is collected along The Rock fishing trail, let’s keep this area clean.

Gull Lake is located in the June Lake Village and accessible via Gull Lake Road/Granite Ave.
Shore fishing from the park is a popular spot (Grills & Tables!), alternatively you can head to The Rock on the other side of Gull Lake accessed by a fisherman’s trail that links up with Gull Meadows Boat Launch area. Rent a boat from Gull Lake Marina or launch your own and try closer to the reeds on the north side of the Lake.
