EXPLORE WINTER ON THE HARD WATER

 

“Fall hook, line and sinker for ice fishing”

Incredible lakes. Scenic views. Time spent with friends and family. A variety of species of fish to catch including our very own stocked ‘Haliburton Gold Lake Trout’ – a glacial relict – all within a short drive from the Greater Toronto and Ottawa areas. These are just a few reasons why you should try this authentically Canadian experience.

Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve

Turn your regular Ontario ice fishing trip into a winter wonderland adventure at Haliburton Forest, as our lakes are only accessible by Snowmobile or ATV during the winter months.

Ice fishing offers the angler the opportunity to fish for the unique ‘Haliburton Gold’ Lake Trout, which is only found in 11 lakes in Haliburton County, as well as for Brook (Speckled) Trout and Lake Trout which are usually more active through the cooler months.

One of the reasons for the popularity of Kashaga Lodge’s ice fishing package is that most of the huts are within easy walking distance of the cottages, enabling anglers to fish when the bite is on, and eat, snooze, play poker, or watch the hockey game in the comfort of their comfy heated cottage. 

Little Hawk Lake

Little Hawk Resort & Marina
Stayed at this fantastic little resort in the middle of no where. What a awesome place to spend a vacation. We booked to ice fish and we had a great time. The cottage was great, the hut is exactly what you need to enjoy time with friends on the lake and catch lake trout, and we caught a couple perch. The food is awesome and the owners are fantastic. Would recommend this place to anyone. Will definitely be back next year! Thank you for a great time!

We situate our huts on a ridge that runs from 45-65 feet in depth, located only 250-300 ft off shore & within easy walking distance for day and night ice fishing.  You can walk back and forth to your fish hut making it very convenient to visit with family and friends staying in the cottage.  Get together with your friends in one of our two bedroom lakeside cottages or three bedroom courtyard cottages featuring gas fireplace, BBQs and full kitchens.
