Once again it’s time for one of our favourite shows, The Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 2017 and this one is right here in New Brunswick. This coming weekend we’ll be at the show which takes place from March 31 to April 2 at the Moncton Coliseum in conjunction with the New Brunswick Sportsman’s Show. If you’re at the show(s) stop by and let us fill you in on all the adventures we have to offer, right in your own back yard. If you happened to catch our recent appearance on Canada In The Rough last week on City TV drop in and let us know what you thought of the episode. It’s always great to hear feedback from people who enjoy the outdoors like we do. If you didn’t happen to catch it we’ll have a few copies available on DVD (for free) at the show. The show highlighted our bear hunting as well as our great fishing for Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon along with the fantastic scenery and wildlife we have in this area.
The show hours and address are as follows:
Atlantic Sports and RV Show and Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum
We’re counting the days here until we attend a couple of our favourite shows, The first one being the Atlantic Outdoor Sports and RV Show in Halifax, Nova Scotia from March 11 to 13, 2016 at the Halifax Exhibition Centre. The next event will be the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum in partnership with the New Brunswick Sportsman Show at the Moncton Coliseum. This event runs from April 1 to April 3, 2016. If you’re in either region you can drop by and we’ll give you the low-down on all the great opportunities here at Long Lake Adventures, including our new for 2016 fully-guided 3 day/2 night fishing trips. You only need to bring yourself; we look after the rest-this package includes food (3 meals/day) and fishing gear (if you require it) This offers a great opportunity for those who’ve never fished Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon on a larger body of water as your guide can show you the ropes to give you best chance of hooking up with some of the monster fish here at Long Lake.
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.

The Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 2015 provided a great chance for us to talk to all of you in the Moncton area and “parts beyond”; we’d like to express our appreciation to those of you who stopped by to chat with us during this event and we hope you enjoyed the Forum and the NB Sportsman Show. We enjoy this event ourselves and it’s become truly a “don’t miss” show when we plan which events we’re going to attend over the winter months. Following with that thought, we still have some great dates left for fishing and naturally, as opening day draws closer and the weather warms more of us get that “fishing fever”-so we encourage you to contact us to plan your excursion(s) while there’s still some degree of flexibility as far as date ranges go. We remind everyone that all of our packages include your own cabin and access to our leased waters. Fully guided trips are available, however if you are new to Lake Trout and/or Landlocked Salmon fishing and would just perhaps like to hire a guide for a single day out of a multi-day stay, just to “show you the ropes” we will do our best to accommodate you.
The second part of our “Fishing With Friends” video we shot last July with Steve Clapperton and crew is now available on our Youtube channel at https://youtu.be/5PrG0TGqkrM (courtesy of Eastlink TV who produced the video-thanks to them for sharing) This video features fly fishing for Brook ( Speckled) Trout and Landlocked Atlantic Salmon in and around Mud Lake, which is one of our leased lakes that is set aside for catch and release fishing only. Shot in one evening just before dark, we hook several wild Brookies and salmon.
On a final note we remind our non-resident friends the countdown is on to get your applications in for the New Brunswick non-resident moose hunting lottery (more info on our Moose hunting page) The deadline is down to 4 weeks away (April 30) so if you’re considering a New Brunswick Moose hunt be sure to get those applications in.
Hi folks-we’ll start this post by saying thanks to all who came out to talk to us while attending the show in Halifax last weekend; as usual we had a great time ourselves speaking with folks from all over Nova Scotia and beyond. Our next (and final show of the winter/ spring) will be the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 2015 which takes place annually in conjunction with the New Brunswick Sportsmen’s Show. The Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum has all kinds of gear for everyone-the focus is naturally on fly fishing but there’s lots of equipment on display to appeal to any angler. This event will be taking place March 27 to 29 at the Moncton Coliseum, 377 Killam Drive, Moncton New Brunswick.

The first part of the video from Eastlink TV’s “Fishing With Friends” is now live on our Youtube channel! This video was shot last July (2014) when Steve Clapperton joined us at Long Lake Adventures for some Lake Trout fishing; featuring some trolling in deep water and casting we boated and released a few fine Lakers. Part 2 featuring fly fishing for Landlocked Salmon and Brook Trout will be online in a few days. These videos aired on TV recently on Eastlink’s own cable channel which covers southwestern New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia . We thank Eastlink and everyone associated with production for creating and sharing the videos with us to show “to everyone” interested in fishing at Long Lake Adventures!
New Brunswick Lake Trout fishing with a fly rod here at Long Lake Adventures
We enjoyed the Halifax show and would like to say thanks once again to all the people who dropped by our booth to talk to us. Last but certainly not least on our show list for this year is the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 2014 which is being held at the Moncton Coliseum this year from March 28 – 30th. This runs in conjunction with the Moncton Boat Show & NB Sportsman’s show. For our clients in southern New Brunswick and PEI it offers a great chance to come and talk to us in person about a fishing trip with us no matter what your preferred fishing method is.
