WABASKANG LAKE PERRAULT FALLS, ONTARIO
Glad you had a good trip! We went last year but really struggled to find fish so we went back to "Ole Faithfull" Lac Seul this year. Did you portage over to Wine Lake? That portage and river voyage was a blast and something I'll never forget. We found some fast action for about 1 hour at the Wine Lake entrance for the 2 days we went over. Tight Lines my friend.
Fished out of Peffley's the week of September 10th, the weather cooperated for the most part. We had a little rain a few days, but no high winds that you can get this time of year. Fishing was consistent for Perch and Walleye. Wife outfished me as usual catching a 14.25" perch this year and a 23" walleye. Caught a lot of walleyes 14" to 17". Wierd summer and fall weather has scattered the fish, no real pattern to them. Caught fish from 15' to 35', jigs crawler and/or minnow both worked. Came home with our 4 person limit of Perch and Walleyes. Camp was excellent, great service. Fish cleaning house is the best I have ever saw. Boats have all been upgraded in the last year or 2.
Just returned from Wabaskang Saturday night after 6 days at Sleepy Dog Cabins. Fishing was good but you really had to work for them. Water temperature was in the mid to low 70's.
Most fish were caught on crawler harnesses, some on whistler jigs. Preferred color was orange followed by chartreuse. Silver rattletraps took the smallmouths.
Booked next years trip for last week of August.
Come on guys I know a bunch of Lake-Linkers have had to have fished Wabaskang lately, please let us know how you did, weather lake levels etc...
I will be up with a small group to Peffley's the week of September 10th and will provide a full report upon return
Fished Wabby 6/25-7/2. Fishing was average. Lots of fronts. Hot n windy one day then cold and rainy the next. Fish were clearly in or on weed edge. They were not on rock points. Never could find concentrations. One here, one there. The "hotel" was probably most consistent in the evenings. 1/8 oz jig with 1/2 crawler or minnow. Spinners with crawler. Snake Northerns were always around and small perch constantly stole your crawler. Frustrating at times. Bring lots of jigs. Between bite offs and snags, I was getting low at end of week. Great times as always. Looking forward already to next year.
