Morning dawns at Peffley's Wilderness Camp

Happy Canada Day!

Perhaps it is hard to believe that July is here for you also? I know for us it certainly is. The month of June flew by as it usually does with camp full, and I apologize for the lack of updates but to be honest I find it much easier to post some info on our Facebook page than here on the Blog. I will however try to be more timely with future Blog updates.

So, what is new? Well after a very dry start to the month of June, the month finished very wet with a lot of rain. Not at all what we needed as we are near record high lake levels. As a result of the rains, we have seen water temps go from almost 70 degrees, back to 56 degrees, back to 66 degrees, down to 62 degrees, back up to 68 degrees and currently about 66 degrees in most main lake areas. Yeah, it's been a little variable to say the least. Remarkably, and despite the high water and temp fluctuations, we have very consistently had some excellent fishing again this season.

Two of the girls are here (Emily and Allison) for their summer visit and the other two (Megan and Sara) will be coming up later this month as both had other commitments at home to attend to.

Like every season, this year has presented its own set of challenges. From the high water, to some water and septic tank issues early in the season, to a hull repair on the passenger boat, it certainly has been unique so far this year. Thank heavens for the constants: lot's of great guests, great fishing, and many happy memories made while in camp. That is what it is all about!

While I have tried to share some photo highlights on our Facebook page, I will post a few more here. Camp will remain very busy in July with just a few openings and also an August opening (yes, that is right, there is an opening in August!) so if you are looking for a late season trip give us a call.

Until next time, and hopefully it won't be as long....
