Fishing Canada-Young at heart

We were fortunate enough again this year to be hosts to Pete Paruch’s family from the St. Joseph, Michigan area. I forgot to ask Pete how many years in camp this was for the family but let’s just say this “wasn’t their first rodeo.” Pete was joined by his two sons Ryan and Jason along with his brother Randy and his son Zach. The elder statesman of the crew again this year was Pete and Randy’s father Edward who just celebrated his 90th birthday in April. Edward, who is a WWII veteran and retired (27 years) Michigan state trooper, was making his last venture to camp and had an excellent fishing trip and fished almost everyday with the guys, only sitting out the really crummy days early in the week.
Edward shared with us again this year several stories of camp from years ago, and also mentioned that this was one of his best trips ever. It was truly a pleasure to have Ed and his family in camp with us again this year and we at camp wish to say “Thank you” to Ed for making camp his fishing destination for so many years AND also to help remind us all that youth resides in our hearts.

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.
