2016 will go down in the books as another great year here at Long Lake Adventures. We’ve broken down our recap into three categories; fishing, bear hunting and non-resident moose hunting, with links to new photo galleries. We’ve also got a brand new promotional video on our Youtube channel that shows more about all the fantastic opportunities for everyone here at Long Lake Adventures.

Fishing

Landlocked Salmon from Mud Lake 2016

What a year! After a bit of a slow start 2016 proved to be one of the best seasons in Long Lake’s history.

When the fish started biting you weren’t sure what you had on, a Lake Trout or a Landlocked Salmon. Some of the largest of both species were hooked this year, with a new camp record Lake Trout caught and released. This fish tipped the scales and a whopping 24 pounds.

On our guided All Inclusive fishing trips , where we provided the boat, guide, and gear as well as accommodations and meals our guests had exceptional fishing, we boated over 70 Lake Trout including the 24- pound fish mentioned above. Of these 70, only 9 of them were retained by our clients, leaving the vast majority of them to spawn again this fall and perhaps give someone else the thrill of reeling them in once again in the future.  You can check out our 2016 Fishing Gallery or read more about our New Brunswick Lake Trout fishing here.

 

Bear Hunting

2016 Spring Bear Hunting

This year , both the spring and fall seasons were very productive with several trophy bears taken. Thanks to the hard work and dedicated efforts of our expert guides, all of our hunters had the opportunity to take a bear.

For 2017, we are excited to offer a new area to our property. An archery only area, that has never been hunted with a rifle. Our 2016 bear hunting pictures can be found here and our New Brunswick Black Bear hunting page can provide you with more details on our bear hunts.

 

 

Non- Resident Moose Hunting

2016 Moose Hunting Long Lake Adventures

As you are well aware, drawing a New Brunswick moose hunting tag is difficult, but we were fortunate enough in 2016 to host three lucky hunters, who along with their guides experienced the “hunt of a lifetime”. Earlier-than-normal moose hunting dates, combined with a mixed bag of weather, that ranged from warm and sunny to cold and rainy wasn’t a problem for our experienced guides as all 3 of our hunters took home fine bulls. You can view our 2016 moose hunting photos, along with a video of one of our 2016 hunts here and read more about moose hunting with Long Lake Adventures on this page. We remind our non-resident friends that the 2017 New Brunswick Moose Lottery entry dates start on February 6. We wish you all the best of luck in the draw.

Taking a break on one of our ATV tours

The weather this past summer was exceptional! Sunny warm days, with occasional night time rain showers, made for ideal conditions for several of our “ tailor-made” ATV tours. Fantastic scenery, awesome food and wonderful camaraderie , are making these tours very popular among ATV enthusiasts . Check out our photo gallery.

   A comfortable NEW cabin, with all the amenities and a great view and a custom built dock system by “Big Dads Welding”, were a welcome addition, enjoyed by several families during our “Family Vacation Special” this past August.

We’d like to thank all of our guests, friends and staff who made 2016 another great year and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you in 2017!

New Brunswick Moose Season Dates for 2016

The New Brunswick government officially announced 2 days ago that the 2016 New Brunswick Moose hunting season will once again be a 5 day hunt. Though no official announcement has been made the moose season dates in New Brunswick for 2016 will likely be September 18 through 24, 2016 as this is the last full week in September, Saturday inclusive. There was speculation the hunt might be shortened or possibly split into two 3- day seasons however for 2016 the government elected to maintain  the status quo after consultations with stakeholders.
