About us

We fell in love with Davin Lake Lodge for our family's future.  The secluded and exclusive access to nature and trophy fishing on Davin Lake and Wathaman Lake is our paradise!  Drive or fly...Adventure North, and spend some time enjoying our playground in the Canadian Shield of Northern Saskatchewan.

Year 1


We have just completed our second season and I gotta say we are having a blast!  It was tough to leave and come home this fall as we ALL wanted to stay...Timber most of all!  We LOVE meeting all the new people and getting to hear some great stories from out on the lakes.  We especially love to get out and create our own memories and find new and interesting areas on the lakes.  I caught my personal best this year, a 43" Northern on our way down to the "T".....poor Matt was stuck holding the camera!  Matt had a ton of time out on the lakes this year, guiding and ferrying people to and from the Outpost....he definitely had his hook in the water the most! Milo and Freja didn't want the season to end, especially Milo.  Both kids spend quite a bit of time on the lakes but they enjoyed it even more this year than they did last year...We really couldn't ask for better kids or a better experience for all of us.

Cheers to year 2, 2018 & beyond!!!


I prefer to be out on the lake fishing but my hours on the lake are few and far between.  Every fall I get a couple of days to go anywhere on the lake and fish....every fall I catch my trophy.  This year was 42"


What an excellent year it has been!  The kids are a year older and have been a lot more help around camp.  Freja was helping on the dock this year and both kids were helping in the fillet house.  Milo learned to slab and Freja was having fun washing fish for wrapping.  They will both grow more into certain positions as the years go by.  Freja is more interested in being outdoors than in the kitchen with me although she was a big help around dessert time...everyone disappears when its time to do dishes!  Milo is really interested in learning to guide, but needs to be able to jump out of the boat in the middle of the lake and get back in independently...he also needs to be able to trouble shoot any motor issues...he's learning and its coming!  After all, he is the luckiest fisherman in the family and can pick a good hook for the weather conditions better than anyone else!

We did lots around camp this year, renovated the shower house, which will be a 5-year fix until we build new.  We moved the fuel tanks by the quonset and moved the 5th-wheel over to where the fuel tanks were.  This is in preparation for an 8-man winterized bunk house...I see ice-fishing at Christmas in our future! We are completing the kitchen renovation late August and will tin the lodge roof and paint kitchenettes in cabins this fall as well.

Our clientele has grown considerably although we still have more spaces to fill to be truly run off our feet!  We asked many of you for constructive criticism and feedback...which will only help us to further grow Davin Lodge into a great destination!  We took every comment very seriously, making little tweaks here and there to evolving and revamping our plans moving forward. 


We will keep dreaming if you all keep wishin you were fishing!  

Cheers to year 3, 2019 and beyond!

Danica's yearly trophy catch

I prefer to be out on the lake fishing but my hours on the lake are few and far between. Every fall, I get a couple of days to go anywhere on the lake and fish...every fall I catch my trophy...this year was 43"


Year 4

What was supposed to be our banner year didn't exactly pan out the way we had hoped!  We had a great year despite the pandemic and made a lot of new friends and completed a number of projects around camp!  We have really settled in to this fabulous life and enjoy it more each year.  The kids were a definite asset around here and were also able to make some new friends this year.  We had a number of families and kids come to stay which was a welcome distraction for us and the other parents.  We have made the decision to keep the kids 15 and under stay free policy (for Independent Adventures) to encourage more families to come and visit.  

We were busy around camp with projects and always had fishermen trickling through camp.  It made for a busy and constructive season!  We worked on cutting down trees behind our cabins to expose the rock face...then cutting and splitting wood for storage.  I painted cabins, we re-screed all the doors, our porch and the fillet house.  Matt and friends tinned roofs on all the cabins and out-buildings.  We got the 10kw generator back from Wathaman...i'm sure there is more, but that is what I can recall at the moment.lol

We had some crazy moments, some scary moments and of course some hilarious moments...year 4 will go down in the books as a great year despite the pandemic!  We certainly missed seeing some of our regular fishermen and our international friends in camp, but there will always be 2021!  Here is our family pic for 2020...more photos to come :D

Cheers to year 4, 2020 and beyond!

After visiting this summer, all I can say is that we left with a little piece of our hearts at Davin Lake Lodge and cannot wait to go back!  If you or someone you know is sitting on the fence about maybe taking a fishing trip-then by all means contact this lodge!  I cannot say enough good about it.
