Tobin Lake is a reservoir of Saskatchewan, Canada. Tobin Lake was formed by the E.B. Campbell Dam on the Saskatchewan River in 1963. The dam was originally named Squaw Rapids Dam, but was then renamed E.B. Campbell Dam in 1988 as local first nations people considered the name squaw racist. It is near to the town of Nipawin and is downstream from Codette Lake, formed by Francois Finlay Dam in 1986. The construction of Francois Finlay Dam earned Nipawin the nickname The Town of Two Lakes.
Tobin Lake is home to several species of fish including walleye, sauger, yellow perch, lake sturgeon, northern pike, goldeye, mooneye, lake whitefish, burbot, white sucker, longnose sucker and shorthead redhorse.
Father Mariuz Zajac, from Carrot River caught the world ice fishing record for walleye here in 2005 at 9.8 kg (18.30 lbs). The lake is debatably the top walleye fishing lake in Saskatchewan.
