We kicked off our New Brunswick spring bear hunting season for 2014 here at Long Lake Adventures yesterday evening, May 26 and we started off with a bang- literally! Three of of hunters took fine black bears. After an unusually long winter here in northern New Brunswick (there’s still a bit of snow in some places) the bears have been out and about with lots of activity around bait sites. Weather remains on the cool side but on the bright side the black flies and mosquitoes haven’t come to life yet in much in the way of numbers; of course we expect that to change within the next few days. The weather forecast for the rest of the week shows temperatures warming up with only light winds and very little rain so this should make for pretty good hunting conditions for both the hunters and the bears for the balance of the week.
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.
Fishing season started 4 days ago and our guests have hooked into several fine Togue ( Lake Trout). Landlocked Salmon fishing has also been exceptionally good. The “bite” is really just starting now due in part to the ice only completely leaving the lake a couple of days before the season started. The lure of choice for most of our guests have been various Rapala patterns trolled topwater -we still have a few dates available this spring and with the later-than-normal ice out we expect the water will stay cool well into the latter part of June.

Due to an unfortunate cancellation, some PRIME dates have been opened up here at Long Lake Adventures. If you are interested in experiencing some of the provinces’ best “early season” fishing, ( from May 18th to the 23rd), don’t hesitate! These dates won’t last long!!!
We had another successful visit to Moncton this past weekend- thanks again to those of you who stopped by to meet us. Now we’re waiting for the snow and ice to melt to get our camps ready for the spring fishing season. The countdown is also on for any of you non-resident hunters thinking of applying for the New Brunswick 2014 Moose hunting draw; April 30th is the deadline so be sure to get those applications in so you can join us here at Long Lake Adventures for a trip of a lifetime!
