Long Lake Adventures offers wild, native Lake Trout fishing; these fish are northern New Brunswick Canada’s largest native freshwater fish. Whether known as Mackinaw or Gray Trout (Great Lakes States and Ontario and westward) or Touladi (Quebec) or Togue (hymes with “rogue”, in Maine and here in New Brunswick) or simply as “Lakers” these fish are the largest member of the char family and a cousin of the Brook Trout. Togue favor cold, deep water but can be easily taken the first few weeks of fishing season with basic gear.
Long Lake features unmatched New Brunswick Landlocked salmon fishing. Since their introduction to Long Lake in the 1980’s Landlocked Atlantic Salmon have become prevalent and popular among our clientele. As is with our Lake Trout, our Landlocked Salmon fishery does not rely on supplemental stocking to maintain the population. In fact, to ensure the “survival of the fittest” catch and release was the rule in all the lakes we manage here for several years regarding Landlocked Salmon; this enabled the individual fish best suited to survive and reproduce a chance to gain a foothold and develop a stable breeding population thus allowing our fishery to become a “wild” fishery versus a “put-and-take” fishery practiced in other lakes in New Brunswick that rely on stocking to maintain sufficient numbers.
Long Lake contains 2 strains of Landlocked Salmon; the Sebago Salmon, originally from Maine & southern New Brunswick and the Ouananiche (pronounced waa-na-neesh) strain native to northern Quebec. Here in our part of New Brunswick we refer to them both simply as “Landlocks”. Sebago Salmon generally appear very similar to sea-run Atlantic Salmon with bright silver sides and a few black spots whereas the Ouananiche strain fish often have dime-sized spots that are often dark brown to red and a yellow colouring making them appear similar to a Brown Trout.
