The Fawn River is a river in the north of the Unorganized Part of Kenora District in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. It is in the Hudson Bay drainage basin and is a right tributary of the Severn River.


The river begins at an unnamed lake and flows northeast through Fawn Lake to Big Trout Lake, the location of the Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation (also called the Big Trout Lake First Nation). The river exits the lake at the east and flows north to Angling Lake, the location of the Wapekeka First Nation. The river heads northeast over Ashaway Falls and Crandall Falls, and takes in the right tributaries Little Otter River, Otter River and Fat River. It turns north, takes in the right tributary Pitticow River, then heads northwest. It receives the left tributaries Burning River and Poplar River, and reaches its mouth at the Severn River, which flows to Hudson Bay.


Fawn River Provincial Park is a waterway park that occupies portions of the river upstream and downstream of Big Trout Lake.


The river can be accessed by air from Big Trout Lake Airport and Angling Lake/Wapekeka Airport.
