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 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.
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. 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.
