Halls Lake

Halls Lake is a deep lake, even by Haliburton standards. A hole in one part of the lake is supposedly bottomless, giving this lake the distinction of being the deepest in North America.


The ease of access to Halls Lake makes it a popular fishing destination. You will find smallmouth bass as well as lake trout to be the most popular.
