We have been coming to the Hawk Lake Lodge for 20 years because of their philosophy of catch and release. Because of this philosophy, Hawk Lake Lodge has seen trophy catches for all species. We are still coming to Hawk Lake Lodge because of the fishing, the exceptional food and facilities, as well all of the recreational opportunities offered.

Hawk Lake Lodge is an awesome place to visit! The fishing is incredible… trophy walleyes and smallmouth every day for us, including small children. The owners and staff were the best we have ever been around (and I have been to dozens of lodges and resorts in Canada). The boats, electronics, etc. were excellent. The food and drink was out of this world as well! We will be coming back many more times.
OUR TRIP… 5 STAR ALL THE WAY! Susan and I both were overwhelmed with the accommodations, the hospitality, the service, the cuisine and the fishing. As I told you, I’ve been smallmouth fishing all over Ontario for over 28 years and Hawk Lake Lodge is by far the best for a total fishing experience.

My wife and I (both fishery biologists) have been chasing Smallmouth all over North America for the last 30 years and finally broke the 6 lb mark (6.2 lbs, 20.5 in) at Hawk Lake Lodge this year. Simply put, Hawk Lake Lodge has the best managed trophy population we have seen, not to mention beautiful scenery and 5 star accommodations. We had so much fun we will be returning for a second trip this fall.
Our breakfast was prepared and brought to our rooms, as well as gourmet lunches for the next day on the water. Our dinner was served in a lodge fit for a king. The dinner was comparable to any first class restaurant in any big city. The chef (yes, chef) was of foreign descent and trained in Europe. The staff waited on us hand and foot during the entire stay. It was an unbelievable trip, to say the least.
Time moves faster as you get older and I have learned to spend as much time as I can with family and friends. My sons and I started an annual three day trip to Hawk Lake in the late 90’s. Every year we keep coming back and now stay for a full week. Yes.. the fishing is fantastic and seems to get better every year… yes the accommodations are first class… yes the food is outstanding… but we can do that in a number of places… We come back because we feel at home and my boys feel like part of your family (so do I)… In a world of impersonalization it is so refreshing to be with my sons at Hawk Lake where everything is done with a very personal touch.
[My husband] patiently taught me to fish at Hawk Lake and it has become somewhat of a passion for me. The weeks we spent together in a boat fishing have added a dimension to our marriage that would not have happened otherwise. I know we understand each other better because of our shared time and experience on the water. Even as a novice to the sport of fishing, I was always affirmed, respected, and encouraged by the Hawk Lake Lodge staff. I am grateful and value this.
