2017 Recap/ Review Long Lake Adventures

Our fishing season for 2017 was another fantastic one! Our guests enjoyed some great fishing and made some super memories! Our guided fishing trips (from mid-June to the end of July) were a real hit as well; boating over 90 Lake trout and even more Landlocked salmon, less than a dozen of these fish left the lake and are waiting to be caught again in 2018! Here are a few photos of the awesome catches from 2017:

We also had another great spring bear season in 2017, several beautiful bears were harvested and a few just observed.

One of our highlights was Mr. John Vincent a 13-year return guest and disabled veteran of the US military, harvested his 11th bear with us and 2nd bear to weigh over 400 pounds!

2016 Year in Review Long Lake Adventures

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.

New Brunswick Fishing Season update May 25, 2015

Fishing action is picking up now here at Long Lake Adventures as waters are warming to a level more favourable to the Lake trout and Landlock salmon. Topwater action has been exceptional for our fishermen the last few days with one group boating several fine fish in one day averaging 6 to 7 pounds per fish. This group released over 30 pounds of fish in one day. Their largest fish taken was an 18 pound Lake trout. Other groups are reporting fish over 10 pounds. For more information on New Brunswick’s finest Lake trout fishing visit our Lake trout fishing page– a few dates are still available during the next few weeks !

April 2, 2015 Long Lake Adventures Update/News

 

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.

Final fishing recap-news from summer season at Long Lake Adventures.

Overall we had a great summer in 2014 of fishing here at Long Lake Adventures once again. Fishing continued to be very good through July and August with mostly warm, dry weather and favourable conditions for both fish and fisherman. Labour day weekend saw some unsettled weather and fishing was slow for a few days but picked back up with great action for our last few groups of fishermen in early September. Lake trout season closed on September 15 and we’re already looking forward to the 2015 season. We’d like to thank all of our fishing guests for their patronage and look forward to seeing you next summer- we’re already booking for 2015 so we suggest you contact us ASAP to make your booking and get the best choice of dates (weekends fill up fast!)

We also had several folks take advantage of our family vacation packages with great feedback as well as having a great time with the ATV groups that visited us this summer-we hope to see you all again next year and would like to express our appreciation for choosing Long Lake Adventures for your excursions! We’ll be adding a page dedicated to ATV trips to the website in the near future, so keep an eye out for that; right now the New Brunswick Moose season is in full swing so our attention for the next few days will be with that. Hunting news will be posted here as well on our facebook page.

Thanks again for a great summer!/Merci encore pour un bel été!

Clay and Tanya, and everyone at Long Lake Adventures

 

Long Lake New Brunswick Fishing Report July 7, 2014

Sorry for the delay in updates but things have been rather busy here at Long Lake. After winding up our spring bear season, we jumped right into some spectacular New Brunswick Lake Trout fishing. Vertical jigging and deep water trolling proved to be “New Brunswick's best Lake Trout fishingthe ticket” recently as water temperatures warmed up in mid-June. In one 7 day period near the end of June we boated Lakers with the smallest weighing in at 5 ½ pounds and the largest tipping the scales at 19 ½ pounds. Of the 33 boated ONLY 4 left the lake! Hook and release at it’s finest! In addition to the LFat Laker June 2014akers, we have found the shoreline to be productive for Landlocked Salmon.

On June 25th we hosted our first ever” Guided ATV excursion” 14 couples plus Tanya & I enjoyed 2 days exploring Acadian Timber’s New Brunswick at trip Long Lake Adventurespicturesque property, eating fine food and sharing great company!! An AWESOME trip!

On July 5th we  wrapped up another great experience….We have been shooting an episode of Fishing With Friends with host Steve Clapperton and Danny Harvie on camera. Lots of fish were caught and released, stories shared and laughs were unlimited. Thanks a lot guys for including us in next season! “Right On!”. This show airs on Eastlink cable in Nova Scotia and PEI – we will posting a copy to our Youtube channel after the show broadcasts for all our friends here in New Brunswick and elsewhere.
