Our lake offers some of the finest fishing in all of Ontario. We are active members of OFAH an organization that documents all trophy fish caught in Ontario.
Wawang Lake is widely known for its trophy walleye and northern pike and due to our diligence of reporting details to we rank in the top two fishing lakes in all of Ontario. Bear in mind - Wawang Lake actually ranks #1 overall for walleye and northern pike as these are the two main species in our lake and over time have proven to co-habit well with each other. Wawang Lake does not have the threat of smallmouth bass, musky or trout take-over, therefore, the gene pool and genetics of our fish have remained strong and continue to do so today!
As an Arctic headwater for the Brightsands Provincial Waterway (canoe route) this 5,000 giant is reserved for our guests only. With over 70 miles of shoreline (long, irregular bays & islands) there is nothing else on this lake but us. Just imagine a drive to lake that offers fishing similar to or even better than a 'fly-out service'.
