My first trip to Hatchet Lake Lodge came, of all things, as a gift from my father, whose clients had been frequenting here some 20 years in the past. I'm the fisherman in the family, and even as a solo guest and visitor, I was simply blown away by the quality of the lodge/resort experience. More interesting than anything was that the other 16 guests attending at the same time as myself were ALL repeat customers of this fine fishing camp - from as little as 7 repeat years to one father /son team who had been coming for 14 years! These were all people who had experienced other top notch fishing lodges across north America/Canada, and yet still chose to come back to Hatchet Lake for one reason only - because it was the best. Harvey and Wendy were our proprietors and hosts, and they made you feel welcome from the minute you arrived, and the staff made sure the remainder of your trip was attended to in every way, no matter your needs. Every guest had their own guide for all four days of fishing, so that you could concentrate on any/all species that you might be trying to catch in your quest for the Grand Slam of Fishing. From new fires in your cabin's stove that were stoked before you even woke up, to the fresh coffee awaiting you on your table, to the custom or featured breakfasts every morning, you awoke in paradise, and then FISHED in paradise throughout the day. When you completed your day, which included a shore lunch crafted by your guide, your dinner awaited you every evening in plenty of time to have gotten relaxed and cleaned up after a day of top flight fishing on either Hatchet Lake, or one of the many adjoining lakes available to fish on daily fly-outs. Drinks and cocktails, as well as good company and conversation, were yours to pursue every evening after dinner until you were ready to turn in and do it all over again the next day. While this is the place to happily know you won't even get a cell phone signal for 4 days, internet access is still available for those that want to stay connected, should you so desire. This place is the Cadillac of fish camps, and I can't wait to come back!
