Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Catching up.....

Well so much for being more diligent in getting the Blog done, eh? Lot's of shady excuses to offer is busy, the girls arrived for their 5 week summer visit etc. The best one however, and it's really not even an excuse, is that our internet (via satellite) has been experiencing some "issues" and has only been working well the past couple of weeks early in the morning and again late in the day. If you have noticed a delay in me responding to any of your emails, that is probably why. It is also why the photo gallery updates are way behind.

With the annual golfing festivities behind us, camp moved forward in "normal" fashion. While it has been on the very warm and dry side here, it has been nothing compared to the oppressive heat much of the States has been experiencing. If you are looking for an escape, give us a call as there are still a very few openings this summer.

Fishing despite the bright sunshine, heat and a large mayfly hatch has been decent and getting better and better especially so far this week as guests are finding aggressive walleye throughout the day and easily catching limits. Pike fishing has remained good throughout the period and the smallmouth bite has bordered on the fantastic side with any of our guests who have targeted them reporting very good success with almost all the fish in the 3-4 pound range, and some slightly larger. Perch fishing has been on again/off again, but for those diligent enough to continually poke the weedbeds we have seen some nice baskets of BIG perch the past couple of weeks.

With the new deck completed on the lodge, we have moved on to putting the siding on. Although we have been slowed by the heat of the afternoon, we continue to make good progress and it won't be long and the lodge will look like the rest of the camp.

Here are a few pictures to enjoy from the past several weeks in case you haven't seen some of them in the photo gallery. Speaking of which, if you were in camp and have some photos to share, please e mail them to me and I will do my best to share them with everyone and get them on the website.
