Fishing report- week of May 30-June 6

As might be expected for the first week of June, the fishing was excellent for the week overall. Lots of fish, a nice mix of big fish with many groups saying they never caught so many 18-22″ walleye here, and fish spread out among many places across the north end of Wabby. I’m sure the fishing is just as good on the south end of the lake…

Big fish for the week goes to Pat Dudding who caught a MONSTER 38″ lake trout that buried the 25 lb scale they had on the boat. Congrats Pat on an awesome fish! The walleye bite remains shallow with little vegetation present. Casting and trolling jigs in 1-10 fow with minnows has certainly been best. The pike have been aggressive as usual. Smallmouth were very close to getting on their beds last week, but a little cold snap seems to have pushed them off. Despite that, we heard tales of many BIG smallies caught during the week, and suspect that there is some lights out smallie fishing ahead for groups this week and next. I’d gladly share pictures if anyone would share them with me…. hint, hint….

Well pictures or not, it’s was a fantastic week on Wabaskang and in camp. Almost every regular group, with a couple of notable absences that were dearly missed, were in camp and a new group that is anxious to come see us again. Week four of the season is underway and early reports are that it’s off to a good start!

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.
