Wabaskang Lake is well known for its excellent fishing for Walleye, Northern pike, Smallmouth bass, Jumbo perch, Lake trout and Whitefish. Our guests enjoy fishing for all these species from within a 15 minute boat ride from camp. An easy portage over Hobson Falls will provide guests the opportunity to fish waters that also have a very good populations of Lake Trout, in addition to excellent fishing for walleye, northern, smallmouth and perch. By boat or foot portages, you can fish as many as six other lakes from camp at no additional cost.

Peffley’s Camp is a perfect fishing AND family vacation retreat for couples and families who want to reconnect with nature and their families. Fully modern, clean and comfortable cabins combined with excellent fishing so close to camp makes our camp a perfect choice for families and kids. For the diehard fisherman-you can run a family member back to camp and then return to the hot fishing in less than 30 minutes (round trip). If a storm approaches, chances are you are no more than 10-15 minutes away from the safety of your cabin. Get a real windy day and you don’t have to sit in your cabin “wishin you were fishin”, the narrows right out in front of camp (about a 2 minute boat ride) are almost always “fishable” regardless of the wind and produce many, many limits for our guests every year.

The fish cleaning station is screened-in for your comfort, has two sinks with running water, fish pans to take your cleaned fillets to your cabin, and is one of the cleanest you will find in all of NW Ontario. Your catch for the day can be cleaned, packaged and frozen in the on-site freezer all in one building. Click here for photos of fish cleaning station.

During your stay at Peffley’s Canadian Wilderness Camp, we are confident you will enjoy the outstanding fishing, the friendly atmosphere of the camp, the cleanliness of the camp, equipment and accommodations, and of course the scenery, wildlife and serenity of the Canadian wilderness. We offer an unbeatable combination of great fishing, clean accommodations and affordability. All in a remote setting that you will be sure to enjoy!

Shore Lunch on Wabaskang Lake

Wabaskang Lake is located 40 miles north of Vermilion Bay, Ontario on Red Lake Road. Well respected in Northwest Ontario, Wabaskang Lake is a consistent fishery for Walleye, Northern pike, Smallmouth bass, Jumbo perch, Lake trout and Whitefish. There is not another camp within 10 miles range making it an easy lake to fish, and yields good numbers of healthy “eater” fish and provides everyone a legitimate opportunity at trophy fish of all species. In short, Wabaskang is an excellent multi-species fishery that is sure to please! No Canadian fishing trip would be complete without a tasty shore lunch of freshly caught fish from the cool, clear waters of Wabaskang Lake. There are many island or shoreline spots to enjoy your shore lunch around the lake. We provide your shore lunch kit.
