Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Cool, damp and great fishing!

With already record or near record water levels, the last thing we needed was a damp summer, but so far that's what we have had. Fortunately, the rains have been somewhat scattered with many nice days between, but we just start to make progress on the lake going down and a decent rain pretty much puts us back where we started. July (so far) while typically warm and dry has been much cooler and damper than usual. Great for the fishing, just not what we need to get the water levels down.

Other than our unusual weather patterns, we continue to get much accomplished around camp including numerous little projects that have been on the "to-do" list for longer than I care to admit here! Two of the girls are here for their summer visit and by the end of this coming weekend all four will be here. Just in time to visit with many of their camp friends.

This week is week 9 of our season, so we will be kicking off the second half of our season this Saturday. Wow, hard to believe half the 2014 season is already over! Until the next blog, I will leave you with a few more pictures from the last couple of weeks.

One hungry walleye! Allison and I each hooked the same walleye while fishing together last week.
