Around the Campfire
with owners Steve and Linda Whitman
The summer of 2013 was one of the wettest in recent memory. All the lakes remained high for most of the year and expanded areas in lakes that would "hold" fish. Many of our guests found the fishing action to be fast and furious especially during the latter part of June into July. The catch and release program that is promoted by our camp and others has proven to be a great influence on the quality of our fishery. It is not uncommon, when the bite is on, that anglers can approach or even exceed 100 bass per day!

Some improvements to camp for next year will be a new wood shed with better access and lighting. Additionally, all camps will have a commercial grade charcoal BBQ grill available for guests to use. Charcoal will be available for sale at camp, but all guests are encouraged to bring their own. As known by previous guests, some of the camps have outdoor wood fireplaces and these will remain as well. As an additional service, split dry wood will be available for outdoor camp fires at a nominal fee next season. If you want to split your own, this wood will still be available and remain free.
Many guests have asked me in the past when is the best time to come? I guess its all in what you are looking for. Fishing in our water and the area lakes all come into "their own" at different times of the year. This provides good fishing action from the middle of May to the middle of August. The end of August provides a slower pace but the "bucket mouths" are usually taken during this time. Once

September comes, searching for schooling fish can provide some serious fast action. As a general rule, end of May through June will provide "numbers" and July-August will produce some "wall hangers." Since, we have over 40 different lakes in our area, by taking a guide for at least one day during your stay; this will provide you with a better opportunity to land that big fish you have always dreamed of. Plus, you "leave the driving to us" so you can concentrate solely on your fishing, enjoy the day and experience a great cooked shore side lunch on an open fire by your guide.
We hope you can drop by at our booth at the Rockingham, N.H. show January 11-12, 2014 or at the Worcester, Ma. show February 6-9. We all enjoy our great sport and trading “fish stories” is all part of it.
The staff at Long Lake Camps wish all of our guests a happy and healthy winter and look forward to seeing you next year.... Fish On !.... Steve and the staff
