Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

August is rockin'

Wow! What a start to the month, as the first week of August produced some absolutely fantastic fishing for all species except lake trout which no one targeted. The walleye have definitely put the feed bags on as it was pretty much an all day feed with big numbers of good sized 16-18" eater walleyes and many in the 20-22" range with a handful even bigger as I can recall 3-25" fish caught during the week and at least 2-24" walleye.

The same can be said for the jumbo perch. Although it helps to have some crews in camp that will legitimately target them, they have really turned on big time the last two weeks with a lot of 10" plus perch being caught.

Lake water temperatures continue to hover in the 65-68 degree range and water levels are excellent for this time of year as a little extra rain in late July and so far in August have helped to maintain the water level. A little bit of a warm up is forecast most of this week with temps returning to the upper 70's. All in all it has been a great summer of comfortable temperatures combined with excellent fishing.

It won't be long and our first bear hunters will be arriving so we are pulling for the cooler temperatures to hang around. With a little painting and staining still on the project list, some cool and dry weather would fit nicely with that too.

Here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks until next time.

Looks like a nice day for a swim!

CJ with a girlfriend as cute as yours I hope you aren't planning to kiss that fish!

Adam and his Dad with a nice mixed bag of walleye and pike. What a great trip they had!

Loretta kicked off her week by landing this beast Saturday night. None of the guys even came close to topping this one!

Tom  while not catching a monster pike last year, sure showed that in just a couple of years he's figured out how to catch those 'eyes.

Anthony Cellantani with a basket full of walleye he caught with his father Tom.

Julie  with the pike that got her admitted into the Northern Slayer club. Now, what say we head to Margaritaville Jules to celebrate?
