WE are putting a trip together to go to long lake and were wondering if Trousers lake is any good, is it private also or can anybody fish there? What type of fish can we expect to catch there? thanks Ron.

Hey Ronnie,

Trousers lake is in fact opened to everyone, there are plenty of fish such as landlocked salmon, big brookies and lots of perch. There is two landings on there side of man made damn. All you need is a acadian timber pass and ready to go. any questions let me know.

Hi Chris, thanks for the info, here's a couple more questions, where do I get that permit and how much? and do you think I could drop an 18 feet bass boat in there and are there danger spots for rocks that I should know about? Ron.

Last time I was by Trousers lake we were on our way to Long Lake, at the time Long Lake was $80 per day to fish with Harrisons and it included the nights stay in one of their cabins. I thought you had to pay to fish on Fraser ground?

I haven't been up there in 3 years, but back then the passes were $10 for the year and Clay was selling them at Long Lake, though there was some question at that time whether he was going to continue to do so. Other than that, it cost nothing back then to fish Trouser Lake.

Hi there - A few of us are going to Trousers for the first time this year for opening season. There was no reply on any danger areas on the lake so if anyone knows it would be nice to know. I'm trying to find a "map" of the lake to help us better plan our trip and hopefully target some spots, so if you know where I can get such a map or some general indication of where to go or not go on the lake please reply.

I'd also like to know if there are other lakes in the area close by that might have some nice trout as we would like to explore the region a bit while we are there. We were at long lake last year but want to try out Trousers and others this time around.

Oh and if anyone has any good suggestions for lures and/or flies for Trousers and area around that time that would cool too


Thanks.

Nice big lake,went there three times in may,didn't have a depth finder but lake seamed deep all around exept around the first island and shore on the upper side of the lake and on the upper leg of the lake there was a spot with lots of rocks.Cant say exactly where it was though,found it out when cruising on top of it.Slowed down just in time. Should be nice spot for trout,i think.We mosly fished the lower leg with rapala's and lures trolling,Caught a few landlock from 14-17 inch's,Didn't catch too many trout thought,a couple on the small side exept for one nice one near the dam.Oh and one perch,my fisrt and only one. Dont know if this helps. Good luck ,have fun

There is a book at the library with maps of a lot of lakes with depths on them. Don't know if Trouser is in there but it's worth a look. I think the author is Mike Saia or something like that.

thanks JTROUT and Bigbass - your information is greatly appreciated. I can't wait to get out there, hopefully we'll hook a few but just being out there should be fun on it's own

i have that book, you can buy purchase it (can't remember if it was at Service NB or 3rd floor at Moncton City hall), can't remember the price.. had it for about 5 years now

checked the list of lakes twice, Trousers is not listed in there

Hey chadman

Trousers is the only lake around that area on acadian timber land in which is open to the public. Mostly all other lakes are private on leased from acadian timber. During the early u find the fish in one remote area of the lake and everyone from there tend to go. I know cause me and my father built the last trail into it. We usually fish it off shore but in order to get there can be a night mare (swamped the truck few years back). Only a few things work there i used the fly rod and others use one lure only. We have caught salmon and trout up to 22 inches.

You can get hydrographic / bathymetry maps from DNR for free. be forewarned they are old (60s and 70s) and crude - likely done with a canoe and dropping a weighted measuring tape every so often. But they do give you an idea of the general depths in the lakes.

At least they did have them available at the public office at Hugh John Flemming Centre in Fredericton a few years ago available for photocopying on the spot for free. I heard they scanned them all, so you may be able to make an email request to them.
