Wabaskang Lake/Peffley’s Camp 2016 Season update

My apologies for the lack of blogging, but I am finding it increasingly difficult to find the time to write lengthy blog updates and hope that shorter entries to our Facebook page are helping to fill your void for info!

Arriving in camp 2016!

Hello to all! It’s time to start blogging again as the 2016 opener is now under 10 days away. I left Indiana on Monday morning May 9th and made it into camp about 4 pm on Tuesday May 10th. Driving through NW Ontario, you could see that while lake levels looked pretty decent, the landscapeContinue Reading

2015 Season ends

2015 Season ends

Well the 2015 season is in the books, ending with some very good fishing in September. While the weather remained absolutely fantastic overall during the month, it was a little unpredictable which can be common for that time of the year in NW Ontario. Several days of warm, sunny weather might be followed by aContinue Reading

August remains HOT!

Fortunately I’m not referring to the weather, although we did have another brief spell of temps in the upper 80’s. A cool down ensued thereafter, and culminated in a rainstorm to beat all rainstorms. On Saturday the 22nd, after getting all our guests into camp, it started to rain. It was nothing but rain, heavyContinue Reading

August off to a great start!

Just a quick blog update. As noted briefly in our last blog, August started out on a fantastic note with some great walleye fishing near weed beds and some fish already transitioned to deeper water structure. The week of August 8-15th, saw the return of summer with lot’s of clear skies, plenty of HEAT andContinue Reading

Temps cool down, fishing heats up

With some cooler overnight temps, lots of rain and some cloudy skies, water temps have dropped about 10 degrees and the walleye have certainly noticed. The fishing the last two weeks has gone from good to fantastic. With the girls and Megan’s boyfriend Cody here for just one last week, we have been trying toContinue Reading

July update

July update

Well it’s been a busy month around here for the most part, although in some regards a little disjointed as it relates to family matters. Early in the month, Milissa returned to Indiana to deal with some estate issues and the sale of her Mom’s home. On July 7th Emily and Allison arrived in campContinue Reading

Fishing still very good

Fishing still very good

Yes, it is July. Yes, the mayflies are hatching. Yes, it is hotter. Yes, it is sunny. Yes, it has been very calm with little wind the past two weeks. Yes, the lake water has become extremely clear…. and finally YES, the fishing has still been very good. Not May/June “good”,  but for those whoContinue Reading


Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. I have been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 20 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. My wife Milissa, is a 26 year veteran of the US Army Reserves and was deployed to Iraq in 2009. We are proud supporters of our military and offer a nice discount to our guests who have also served. We have four daughters ranging in ages from 12-18 who spend much of their summer with us in camp and have totally embraced the wilderness experience we offer. They have for years referred to it as the "best summer experience ever".

While rarely necessary on our lake, because I do have a very good working knowledge on how and where to fish here, I will guide groups if asked to. Otherwise, I am always happy to share information with our guests and provide them well marked lake maps so they can start catching fish their first day in camp.

We pride ourselves on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. We have many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years.
