2016 Moose Hunting Long Lake Adventures
Update July 4, 2017-For NB 2017 resident Moose draw results click here
(This Article Posted May 15, 2017) Today’s the day many of you have long-awaited, for the New Brunswick 2017 Non-Resident Moose Draw Results to become available! If you haven’t checked the results yet you can do so by clicking here (page opens in new window). If you were fortunate enough to be drawn we congratulate you! We had a great Moose season here at Long Lake Adventures last year with our non-residents taking 3 fine bulls (see our 2016 photos here). Our preliminary scouting this spring indicates the Moose in our area wintered well making the outlook for 2017 very positive. To read more about New Brunswick Moose hunting here at Long Lake Adventures check our page here. Our Moose hunts are all-inclusive and cover everything except license cost and gratuities. That means all transportation to and from your hunting area, meals, lodging, guide costs and skinning/preparation of your Moose are included.
We even have a special arrangement with a local professional butcher shop who will process your Moose meat to your specifications before you leave. This service is not included in the price of your hunt and you will pay the butcher directly. (His rates are very reasonable and his work is second-to-none). We are not aware of any other outfitters in New Brunswick offering this service.
Our location in the wilderness along with the services we offer including great atmosphere, great food and well-experienced, professional guides make Long Lake the place to be when the 2017 New Brunswick Moose season rolls around. You can contact us via our website contact form or call us at 506-356-5151.
Long Lake Saturday Morning May 13, 2017
The ice is out at Long Lake! Right on schedule and just in time for the season opener today, May 15. There was still some lingering ice on Friday but we awoke to a gorgeous day Saturday which was certainly welcome after all the rain over the last several days. All the coves in the lake will be accessible for our first-day anglers so they can reach their favorite hot spots. Last year was a great year for both Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon fishing here at Long Lake Adventures. We still have a handful of spots available for some prime early season fishing so if you’re considering an early season trip it’s not too late! Our contact info is in the paragraph above, these dates provide an excellent opportunity to hook top-water Salmon and Lake Trout.
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.
Today we finally have open water! -Yes, the ice is out of Long Lake. After a long winter and drawn-out spring we’re officially ready to get the northern New Brunswick lake fishing season underway in 3 days.

Here’s a pic we snapped yesterday (May 4 ,2015) at Long Lake; dark ice and open water along the shore tell us in spite of what’s been a long winter in northern New Brunswick that the ice will be out right on schedule! Over the next few days we’ll be getting things ready for our fishing guests and spring bear hunters-we look forward to seeing you soon!
