We are sorry you did not get out what you had hoped to while working at Hawk Lake Lodge. We treat all our employees like family and unfortunately some do not work out as much as we would have hoped. Our returning guides and staff (of which we have many) catch fish all summer long as documented by over 16 TV shows, 7 world records and a repeat clientele of over 82%. Some client have been coming for over 30 years. We book years in advance for a reason, it is a world class fishery. Unfortunately come guide resumes do not always measure up.
This past summer our guides and staff received a brand new multi-story staff house with private rooms, 3 bathrooms, internet, new flooring, the works. We go to great lengths to ensure we treat our staff as we would our own family. Respect is a two way street but in the end we want to make sure everyone is safe, happy and having fun! We pay above market rates and our guides last summer made over 5 figures each in such a short summer and had unlimited free fishing whenever they wanted (including as much gas as they would like and use of every lake we fish). Some of our staff have been coming back for the past 9 years straight. We love them and look forward to seeing them for many years, whatever career they eventually choose. This upcoming season we are expecting a return staff rate of 75%, with several staff we have decided not to bring back for our own reasons. We can't wait to have a another fun summer.
