Hi, I'm just curious about this lake I've heard about called First Eastern Lake in Saint John, that is right off the Black River road.
I've heard about landlocked salmon and lake trout being in there, and that is enough to entice me. Anyone have any luck in there?
I google'd it in the maps, and it looks like a road heads right up into it from off the Black River road, but it looks like there's a house there.....it's not a private road is it?
I have a small, 4 man paddle boat I'd like to put on it.
Anyone who knows anything would be great.
Thanks.

i have fished most of that area for years and never heard of first eastern lake before. maybe it's known by another name? happens here a lot. i'll have to look into it. most lakes along black river rd are speckies only except beaver which is private.

yup, i think we used to call them "rock lakes". used to be a bit of a walk from the road, then a new camp was added and now there is another on stoker lake, looks like he almost closed the trail going in when he built the place so i haven't tried walking past it. i have fished them both with little results but that was almost 20 years ago. i don't know about land lochs there, but it is possible. lake trout are doubtfull but browns are still possible as these are down stream from the loch lomand lakes.

I would think it would be pretty hard for land lock salmon to get in there since the Mispec River doesn't get close to First Eastern at all and doesn't look like any other links to Loch Lomond

you could be right jim, but the area floods a lot in spring, connecting a lot of the streams. browns were stocked all through that area and people from beaver lake spread them around a bit too. i don't see how lake trout could survive and land lochs would certainly have a hard time too. hard to say for sure, as i said, its been around 20years - not much hitting then, a few small speckies.
