COVID UPDATE – This is a trying year for all of us and we hope you are safe and healthy. As of 5/15/2020 the US/Canadian border is closed until the third week of June.  As such all reservations have been cancelled from the open until June 26th.  All reservations during this period (and later even) can and have booked a backup or secondary trip later this year.  For those guests that have decided to cancel for this summer we will allow a partial rollover of your deposit to a future trip in 2021.  The entire amount to be rolled over has not been determined as of yet and will be heavily influenced by any government assistance to the industry (currently there is none) and what if any part of the summer we can be open in 2020.  The deposit rollover amount will be determined later this summer. 

Yes, we would love to be able to tell everyone now but there are too many balls in the air.  And while technically all deposits are non-refundable and each guest was encouraged to buy trip insurance we hope that by giving a substantial portion back as a credit will show that both you and we are in this together.  We can not refund money we do not have. We are a seasonal business and as such heavily rely on deposit monies throughout the winter and early spring months.

If and when further cancellations are required this summer due to the virus we will be in touch with each guest personally to discuss their options.  Please follow us on Facebook for updates and changes as we try to post as often as we can to keep everyone up to date.


Ontario’s rugged Canadian Shield is legendary for its clear, cold waters, stunning rock formations and wide variety of high quality fishing opportunities. Part of this legend is Hawk Lake Lodge, one of Ontario’s premier fishing lodges. Carefully designed as a private retreat for twenty-four guests, Hawk Lake Lodge offers not only the wilderness and solitude you hope for but a quality angling experience topped by what many other destinations overlook… the finest in accommodations, personal service and dining as well as access to some of the best, unspoiled, light tackle sport fishing lakes in Canada. The lodge lakes have produced multiple catch and release world records including a walleye at 37 inches, and smallmouth bass at nearly 9 pounds!

Imagine you are the only person on a remote wilderness lake. Hear the smooth sound of your cast. Feel the quick snap of the strike and the strength of a trophy fish at the end of your line. That angling experience is at its best at Hawk Lake Lodge in Kenora, Ontario. We have spared nothing to ensure that each visit exceeds your expectations.

“Hawk lake is truly a trophy fishery with the ability to maintain itself that way.  Huge fish, Walleyes, Small Mouth Bass, Pike and even Lake Trout.  With Hawk’s total catch and release policy it will stay a trophy lake.

One look around and you realize that you are in God’s country, crystal clear water, granite and tree covered shorelines, the epitome of what Ontario is known for.  The accommodations, lodge, food and help were all first class!  Hawk is one of the finest all around operations I have ever been to in Canada”  – Babe Winkelman
