The deep, cool nature of the lake creates ideal habitat for lake trout. The rocky shoreline also provides a good habitat for smallmouth bass. Some rumours exist that largemouth bass are now present in the lake as well.
The Haliburton County Snowmobile Association (HCSA) has over 350 km of groomed trails along some fantastic scenic routes. The B112 trail is just north of Bob Lake and will lead you directly into the town of Minden.
