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!
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:
Hi everyone..We’ll be at the Rockingham , New Hampshire Fishing and Hunting Expo on January 9th and 10th 2016, so if you’re in the area come on down and chat with us about some of the great opportunities we have here at Long Lake Adventures. Whether you’re looking for a spring bear hunt or grouse and woodcock hunt or some great fishing for lake trout and landlocked salmon we have it all and we’re only a few hours away in New Brunswick.
The show is being held in Salem at Rockingham Park just off I-93. You can get directions here. It’s only a 30 minute drive from Boston! We’re in booth 105 just to the left after you go in the main entrance. For more info on the show check out the shows website. We look forward to meeting you and showing you more info on the multitude of outdoor adventures we can provide you with.
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 !
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. For more information on the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum visit http://www.flyfishingforum.ca/
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!
Canada In The Rough will be visiting us this spring to take part in a New Brunswick spring bear hunt as well as experiencing our great fishing for Lake Trout and Landlocked Salmon!
Canada in the Rough is one of North America’s most popular outdoor television shows, hosted by the Beasley Brothers- Keith, Kevin and Paul, they’ll be joined here at Long Lake Adventures by Darren Hasson of Graywood Sporting Group. We’ll be pursuing some big Black Bears in the late afternoon/evenings and spending the rest of our daylight hours on the water in search of some Landlocked Atlantic Salmon and Lake Trout. This will be Canada In The Rough’s first trip to Long Lake Adventures and we look forward to hosting them!
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 “the 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 Lakers, 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 picturesque 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.
2 nice lake trout- 11lbs (left) and 13 lbs (right)-June 1, 2014
Mud Lake is producing lots of fiesty landlocked salmon now for our catch and release only anglers.
We had another great week of fishing here at Long Lake Adventures-water conditions are now prime and warmer weather is making for more pleasant conditions on the water. The last few days saw very little in the way of rain after the cool ,windy conditions we had during early part of last week. Topwater action continues to be good and our fishing guests that were here over the weekend hooked into several 10 pound plus Lake Trout. Landlocked Salmon fishing also continues to be very good.
Weather for the rest of the week is forecast to be darker with some rain but overall conditions should be good ! A few openings still exist so contact us for your chance at getting in on New Brunswick’s finest Lake fishing.
Another nice Laker from Long Lake.
nice lake trout and a fat landlocked salmon
Doubleheader on Landlocked Salmon
New Brunswick Togue May 25,2014
Fishing continues to be great here at Long Lake Adventures and waters have warmed only slightly as there is still snow in the woods in this part of northern New Brunswick( yes, really there is ). Landlocked Salmon fishing seems to be getting better by the day. Overall conditions have been favourable with overcast skies but little in the way of significant rainfall or high winds the last couple of days. Topwater action continues to be great with anglers using a variety of lures-mostly minnow baits trolled on a flat line.
