WABASKANG LAKE PERRAULT FALLS, ONTARIO
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.
Coos, take one of the camp boats. The better fishing in that lake is on the opposite ends from where you are staying. Sure there are some decent spots around you, but it gets much, much better the farther you get away from that end.
About the only map I've ever seen for Wabby is the Canadian map which we all know isn't overly accurate. But, it does the job.
Be very, very careful if you choose to paddle a canoe around the 7 foot falls, or even the smaller one as it dumps into Wine Lake.
Have been on wabaskang a few times.notcthat much current there as the water flows through it and its a short distance.but wabaskang gets super windy there.better hopefor some calm weather which seems we dont get much of this summer so far.but good luck on your adventure.
