Fishing on Wabaskang Lake

Experience Premier Fishing on Wabaskang Lake at Peffley’s Canadian Wilderness Camp

Peffley’s Canadian Wilderness Camp offers more than just stunning views and comfortable accommodations; it’s a top destination for anglers seeking an exceptional fishing experience on Wabaskang Lake. Known for its abundance and diversity of fish species, Wabaskang Lake stands out as one of the best multi-species fisheries in Northwest Ontario.

Why Wabaskang Lake is an Angler’s Paradise:

  • Diverse Fish Population: Wabaskang Lake is teeming with walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, jumbo perch, lake trout, and whitefish. Its rich ecosystem makes it a haven for anglers looking for variety and abundance.
  • Proximity and Accessibility: Most of the prime fishing spots on Wabaskang Lake are within a 15-minute boat ride from Peffley’s Camp, ensuring that you spend more time fishing and less time traveling.
  • Walleye Wonderland: According to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources’ “Wabaskang Lake Walleye Status Report Card,” the lake boasts an above-average walleye population with a good size range. Anglers often find success in less than 16 feet of water, making it a hotspot for those targeting this sought-after species.
  • Northern Pike Adventures: The lake’s northern pike population provides thrilling fishing experiences, especially from late July through early September. With a healthy stock of fish under 10 pounds and the opportunity to catch trophy-sized pike, anglers are in for an exciting challenge.
  • Jumbo Perch Galore: Wabaskang Lake’s perch are not only abundant but also impressively sized, commonly ranging from 9-14 inches. This underfished species offers an excellent opportunity for anglers to fill their coolers with delicious, sizable catches.
  • Smallmouth Bass Action: The lake has gained a reputation for its robust smallmouth bass fishing, with many “football” sized bass in the 3-6 pound range. The exhilarating topwater action and their fierce fighting spirit make them a favorite among anglers.

Explore Surrounding Waters:

Beyond Wabaskang Lake, nearby bodies of water like Mud, Ruby, Wine, Beaver, and Keynote Lakes also offer fantastic fishing opportunities, particularly for perch enthusiasts.

Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. Dave has been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 25 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. I am a proud supporter of our military and offer a nice discount during the month of July to our guests who have also served. I have three daughters ranging in ages from 16-21 who spend much of their summer with us in camp and have totally embraced the wilderness experience we offer. They have for years referred to it as the "best summer experience ever".

While rarely necessary on our lake, because I do have a very good working knowledge on how and where to fish on Wabaskang Lake and our portage waters, I will guide groups if asked to. Otherwise, I am always happy to share information with our guests and provide them well marked lake maps so they can start catching fish their first day in camp.

I pride myself on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. Many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years and even some over 40 years.
