Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Another season passes quickly!

The title seems like such an understatement from my perspective as one day you are unloading your own gear, putting the docks, boats, motors etc. in the water, and in the blink of an eye you are turning around and getting everything in camp ready for the winter.

In between of course, there was a fair bit of work involved in running the camp on a day to day basis over the 18 weeks of the operating season. There was also quite a bit of incredible fishing during those 18 weeks also. Wabaskang Lake continues to live up to it's reputation as one of the premier walleye and pike fisheries in the region and with good reason! Long before September ended the "Walleye" section our Catch & Release board for the free trip to camp drawing was maxed out with guest releases of walleyes over 18". This despite many, many of our guests/groups not even submitting their entries for our drawing. As a final reminder, if you were in camp this season and had releases you still want to submit or some great photos of your trip-just email them to me and I will get them added prior to our late November drawing for next years FREE TRIP winner. I did recently update the photo gallery with a handful of new pictures from the August/September timeframe in camp, but I know many others have photos too, so please send them to me and I will be happy to add them.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again next season. Camp is booking up quickly as usual for next year so if you don't already have a reservation don't delay in being in touch with us too long! In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the end of the season.

Andy Augustine with a beautiful 29" walleye about to be released

Keith Augustine with a big pike from late August

Jim and Andrea Klett with a great looking August stringer of walleye

It only took Kenny Welsh one night in the stand to bag this beautifully coated bear

Jim Rutkowski (with Kenny Welsh above) took two nights to get his bear

Fall colors move in on camp near shut down time

September sunrise in camp...every bit as beautiful as the rest of the year
