The Gull river watershed is at the very top of the Trent River basin and lies between the Black River watershed to the west and the Burnt River watershed to the east.  With a drainage area of approximately 1350 square kilometers, the Gull River makes up approximately 10% of the total drainage area of the Trent River.  The Trent Severn Waterway operates 21 Dams within the Gull River watershed.

The lakes that are controlled by the various dams on the Gull River are typically deep, cold-water lakes that support a rich lake trout fishery.  In addition, the surface area of the lakes within the Gull River system can more easily cope with high inflows when compared to the lakes within the neighbouring watersheds.. As a result the lare water volume of the Gull River system, the flows generated dureing the spring are typically less than half the flows of the Burnt River, which is nearly the same drainage area.  The outlet of the Gull River is in the Town of Coboconk where the River enters Balsam Lake.
