Photos from opening week-2009. Cold weather didn’t stop these guys!


Well here it is March already! Winter is going to be over soon…. or so we hope. Regardless, it won’t be long and it will be time to head off to camp and get ready for another fantastic season of fishing on Wabaskang Lake!

It’s an early opener this year, but for those willing to brave the elements it provides some of the best multi-species fishing of the year, including excellent opportunities for nice lake trout in shallow water. For those who are willing to brave the POTENTIALLY cooler weather we are offering a special opening week rate to camp of $450.00 per person. That is $100.00 off the standard four person rate and $200.00 off the two person rate! Think of how many extra pairs of stocking caps and gloves that will buy you, and the fishing won’t disappoint!

Opening week-UPDATE

Opening week-UPDATE The response to our new special for opening week has been pretty good. With the current weather forecast for Perrault Falls, things are definitely looking up and showing more potential for an earlier ice-out. Temperatures for the next seven days (at the time of this writing) are forecast to hit highs of 43-52Continue Reading

2010 Arrival at Camp

We made it into camp on Tuesday afternoon, May 4th. It was really a pleasant day to make the first trip in as the weather was partly cloudy with temps in the low 50’s. We had just enough time to unpack, get the electricity on (generator fired up) and a little water hooked up.In hindsightContinue Reading

2010- A season of memories…..

Sandwiched between Don Strafford’s 49th consecutive year in camp (opening week) and Jim Wertz’s group first ever visit to Canada during week 19 of the season, was another incredible season of fishing, friendship, fun and memories at Bear Claw Camp. New faces blended in with the regulars week in and out, to enjoy the splendorContinue Reading

Happy Veterans Day

We often find things to blog about during the “offseason” to be quite challenging. Outside of camp life, I guess we just don’t lead very exciting lives! Milissa and I were just talking the other night about posting a wish for a Happy Veterans Day to all of those who have bravely served in theContinue Reading

Happy New Year!

Hey does anyone know if there is a college football bowl game on tonight? Yea, if it’s anything like the last 2 1/2 weeks or this coming week, the answer is  probably “yes”. Don’t get me wrong, I love watching almost any team play college football, but I have to admit the bowl season is gettingContinue Reading

Winter Wonderland Show in Northern Indiana

Winter Wonderland Timing really is everything. As I pulled out of our driveway in the wee hours of January 7th to head to St. Louis for the first show of the year, who would have guessed just a short 24 hours later our area of northern Indiana would be buried in 25″ of new snow.Continue Reading

Road Trippin to the show!

Hi All, Just a quick blog this time from the road. I am currently in Stillwater, MN staying with a good friend dating back to my public accounting days and trying to get a few administrative details handled while waiting for the start of the Minneapolis All-Canada show this Friday (2/18). This trip has alreadyContinue Reading

March comes in like a lamb…..

At least here in northern Indiana it did, so if the saying holds true can we expect it to leave like a lion? Not sure to be honest exactly what that would mean, but at this point I certainly hope it doesn’t mean more snow and cold weather. Yes, you guessed it, we have hadContinue Reading

Spring update

Hey everyone,Hope you are enjoying the very slow and deliberate arrival of Spring this year. After being teased weeks ago with some temperatures in the seventies, it has been a treat since to get a sunny day in the 50’s. Despite the cooler temperatures, I actually had a chance to get our boat (TrebleTime) outContinue Reading

Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. Dave has been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 25 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. I am a proud supporter of our military and offer a nice discount during the month of July to our guests who have also served. I have three daughters ranging in ages from 16-21 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 on Wabaskang Lake and our portage waters, 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.

I pride myself on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. Many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years and even some over 40 years.
